A team of 6 girls and 4 boys put together a 2200-piece jigsaw puzzle in 4 hours. The same jigsaw puzzle was put together in 8 hours by a team of two girls and five boys.

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

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.
