childrenLet’s assume that Rene and Leo are both heads of household, and, what a coincidence, both families include three girls and three boys. The youngest child in Leo’s family is a girl, and in Rene’s family, a little girl has just arrived. In other words, there is a girl in Rene’s family whose age is less than one year. Neither family includes any twins, nor any children closer in  age than a year. All the children are under age ten. In each family, the sum of the ages of the girls is equal to the sum of the ages of the boys. The sum of the ages of all these children is 60.

Question: What are the ages of the children in these two families?
