The Puzzler


RAY: This is nice and short and it was sent in fairly recently by a fellow named Richard Rarridan. And I'm using it because a lot of people have complained that some of our puzzlers are a little difficult to grasp (i.e. boooogus)!

In a certain family each daughter has the same number of brothers and sisters. Each son has twice as many sisters as brothers. How many sons and daughters are there in the family? Now there are two ways to do this obviously, you can do it the hard way or the easy way.

Think you know? Drop Ray a note!
