1. #Sons = s, #Daughters = d

s-1 = d

d-1 = s/2

------->

s = 4

d = 3

2. I certainly don't have an equation for this, but I believe there would be 7 children....4 boys and 3 girls. That would mean each boy has 3 brothers and 3 sisters and each girl has 4 brothers and 2 sisters.

3. #sons = h #daughters = d brothers = b sisters = s

h = b+s
d = h/2

so if you have one daughter you have two sons and so on so forth because the daughters only equal half of the sons.
