    William has 5 children. Plus Gretchen has 5. There are 10 children altogether. 5 of them are boys.

  • Dude

    Nope, sorry that is not the solution here. There are only 5 children total, and half of them are boys.

  • Andy

    It feels like I am stretching a bit;

    Gretchen has four children – two boys and two girls.
    William only has one child – a boy.

    So five in total. However, William’s child is also one of Gretchen’s boys – so only four unique children, two boys and two girls.

    They are all boys.

  • Dude

    CJS you are today’s winner! All five of them are boys. No matter how you slice it half are boys.
