3 Boys and 4 Girls
The one boy has 2 brothers becaus ehe is one of the 3 boysgiving him 4 sisters which is double the amount of brothers he has and the girl has just as many sisters as brothers - 3 sisters and 3 brothers.

Ah nice, that makes two of us.
Its based on money being the route of all evil, as well as a couple of other well known facts/phrases.
