Best Answer

Let the number of sisters be s and the number of brothers b. We must remember to bear in mind that no one is their own brother or sister!

'The youngest sister has the exact same number of brothers and sisters.' Therefore:

s - 1 = b 'Her oldest brother has twice as many sisters as brothers.' So:

2(b - 1) = s

2b - 2 = s Subtracting 1 from each side:

2b - 3 = s - 1

But s - 1 = b, so

2b - 3 = b

b - 3 = 0

b = 3 And from above, s = 4. Thus there are seven siblings altogether; Four girls, 3 boys.

So what the question is really asking is, "How many brothers and sisters do you have?" An answer revealing the number of sisters in one's family as well as brothers would not be unexpected. In Spanish questions, there is usually an accent on the adverbial question word; in this case, Â¿cuÃ¡ntos?

The phrase is "Frère Jacques." Jacques is a man's name. "Frère" means "brother." In the song (probably what you are thinking of) it is not a brother in a family but a monk of a religious order addressed as brother.

The internal conflict is felt by Luke. He has to decide whether to live out his missed family life with his girlfriend and her family, or continue the family business with his brother.
