Joulupukki Is Fair: Your Christmas Riddle

Please comment your solutions, questions and remarks..

Joulupukki came to a kindergarten. He had some number of candies to give to the children. He saw that there are more boys than girls and that he could divide the candies evenly among the girls and also among the boys. On the other hand he could divide the candies evenly among all the children and that is what he did. Each child got three candies.

How many candies would each girl get, if Joulupukki divided the candies only among the girls?

Merry x-math, everyone!
