Building a Play House

Rakesh and Nikhilesh were carrying pieces of timber to build a playhouse. Nikhilesh said to Rakesh ‘Give me one of your pieces so that we shall both be carry the same number of pieces’.

‘No’ said Rakesh, proudly wanting to display his strength ‘Give me one of yours and I shall be carrying twice your weight’.

Can you tell how many pieces of timber were each Rakesh and Nikhilesh carrying?
