Boys are so way better than girls.

I do have the same solution like Jorge Pardo wrote here. Just a simple math. ðŸ™‚

6G +4B = 2200 pieces/4 hrs

2G + 5B = 2200 pieces per 8 hrs

B=25 pieces/hr

G=75 pieces/hr

I do not see if is a match among boys Vs girls!

From the calculation it seems that girls are better in putting jigsaw puzzles together than boys by 3 times. 1 girl is equal to 3 boys.

Girls are three times better than the boys, putting in 75 pieces per hour versus 25 forthe boys.

Girls place 75 pieces/hr each and boys place 25 pieces/hr each.

6G +4B = 2200 pieces/4 hrs

2G + 5B = 2200 pieces per 8 hrs

B=25 pieces/hr

G=75 pieces/hr
