- The following problem is from both the 2004 AMC 12A #4 and 2004 AMC 10A #6, so both problems redirect to this page.
Problem
Bertha has 6 daughters and no sons. Some of her daughters have 6 daughters, and the rest have none. Bertha has a total of 30 daughters and granddaughters, and no great-granddaughters. How many of Bertha's daughters and grand-daughters have no daughters?
Solution
Since Bertha has 6 daughters, Bertha has granddaughters, of which none have daughters. Of Bertha's daughters, have daughters, so do not have daughters.
Therefore, of Bertha's daughters and granddaughters, do not have daughters .
OR
Draw a tree diagram and see that the answer can be found in the sum of 6 + 6 granddaughters, 5 + 5 daughters, and 4 more daughters.
