The census taker has arrived at yet another house, and is greeted by a busy housewife. This woman poses a new riddle: "2 of my girls have red hair, the rest are brunettes. All 8 of my boys have black hair. What percentage of my children are girls?" she asks. The census taker is stumped, and instead decides to help her put the dozen popsicles she bought for her kids in the fridge, and watches as the mother scolds a child for not wanting to share his toys. "All of my children are so greedy she says". The census taker decides to skip this house, since he isn't feeling like unnesesarily hard riddles. Did the census taker give up too easily? If so, what was the answer to the mother's question?
I made the problem myself, so do tell me what you think about it and how I could improve it.
