The Solutions


Mothers' and Daughters' Day Out

This problem was correctly solved by:

Ilona from NY, Age: 7
There was two mothers and two daughters, becouse its grandma, mother and daughter. So jast three persons like in my family..
---------------------------

David from Massachusetts, Age: 38
One of the daughters is also a mother. Chances are, both mothers are also daughters (if one or both of their parents is still alive), so you could also run this mindtwister with 2 mothers, 2 daughters, and only 2 coffees and 2 pieces of cake!.
---------------------------

Stefani from OH, Age: 8
A woman with her mother and her daughter..
---------------------------

Sweet Baby Jane from Alberta Canada, Age:
They were Grandmother, Mother and Daughter. The 2 mothers were, the grandmother was the mother of the mother and the mother is the mother of the daughter. The two daughters were, the mother is the daughter of the grandmother and the daughter is the daughter of the mother..I hope you understand this confusing answer!.
---------------------------

Yvette from USA, Age: 10
There were 3 people, a grandmother, a mother, and a daughter..
---------------------------

Kaitlyn from Canada, Age: 8
That's because there was the first generation mother who had a daughter and this daughter had a daughter. SO you have a grandmother who is a mother, her daughter who is now a mother and finally the daughter..
---------------------------

Bethany from England, Age: 10
2 mothers and one daughter=1 grandma and her daughter the grandma's daughter is my mum and I'm her daughter.That way we each ordered 1 piece of cake and a cup of coffee..
---------------------------

blueangel from california, Age: 10
one grandmother, one mother, and daughter.
---------------------------

Syrup from Florida, Age: 10
There is a grandmother,a mother,and a daughter. The 2 daughters are the grandmother's daughter,and the mother's daughter. This now equals up to 2 daughters [grandmother's daughter and her daughter's daughter]and 2 moms[daughter's mom anddaughter's mom's mom]..
---------------------------

Joseph from Florida, Age: 11
The grand mother was the first mother. The second mother is the first daughter and the daughter of the grandmother. The second daughter is the daughter of the mother,so that makes 3 people. So each person has a cup of coffee and a piece of cake..

Of course, there were other opinions:

akila from India erode
The two daughters have the same mother..

m m from Hawaii United States
They halved a piece a cake and cup of coffee.

MB from United States
One of them didn't want anything.

amanda from ohio usa
each mother and daughter had one whole and a half apeice..

FROG from CA USA
I don't Know, ONe did not eat..

Spizzy from Uk
the children shared a cup of coffee and a cake.

a.j. from MS U.S.A.
Each dauther had half a piece of coffee & half a piece of cake ..

love from nj
that is possible because they could have one cup of cofee each and then they could have shared the other cofee and cake..

Jessica from Apex N.C
There is only one mother, she has two daughters, but their relationship is stepsisters. This means that the mother is a real mother to two, and she has only two daughters, causing there to be only three people in all..

Brianna from VA United States
They Split it?.

Unknown from ?
it's not possible.

Justin from Pennsylvania PA
The mom and her daughter split the coffe and cake..

Nic from TN
One of the mother's is expecting her daughter. This would explain, only three cups of coffee and three pieces of cake. Our other guess is that one of the mother/daughter set split a piece of cake and cup of coffee..

Unknown from ?
They had left overs.

Michael from NC
its because 3x3 equals 9.

Jazz from CA
one person did not get coffee or cake.

Unknown from ?
The one daughter and one mother sahred the cake and coffee..

Vivek from California USA
One of them didn't drink a cup of coffee or eat a piece of cake.It just said they HAD that doesn't mean she ate or drank it..

Harold from Montreal Quebec Canada
the 1st mother had a coffee and her daugthers had a piece of cake each the 2nd mother had a coffee and her daugther had a piece of cake the other one had a coffee.

Zory from NJ
one person was left without a coffee and cake..

Tee nigie from FL.
Maybe the to daughters were twins and shared a cup of coffee and a piece of cake..
