 _rab Aug 14, 2002 If there are six players on the team, how do you get 5 girls and 2 boys?? smileysteve May 29, 2003 the coach was a girl fishmed Aug 13, 2003 You forgot the water boy... paul726 Mar 04, 2006 What was the coach's problem that he/she needed so much water, while it was the players doing all of the work? blonde_genius Jul 14, 2006 This was too easy... after I took out the coaches water, I knew there were only two boys because that was the only way it could have ended in four... I could have solved this when i was a little kid... javaguru Feb 01, 2009 Way too easy. The water the coach drinks is pointless to the teaser. The 34 remaining are 2 less than the average of 6, so there must be two more girls than boys. Jimbo Mar 28, 2009 I love your logic Java. This is the way all of us should think about problem solving! Good teaser - better explanation!
