let n be the number of folks

let D be the donation per person

n*D=2040

(n+69)(d-23)=2040

With those two equations, it ought to work out. Repost if you have difficulties.

I've studied this several ways.

There are a few different equations that can be defined to represent the given conditins.

One is:

Let N = the initial number of contributors and d = the initial donations.

Then, Nd = 2040 and N(d - 23) + =69(d - 23) = 2040.

Substituting and simplifying yields d = 23 + N/3.

N must be divisible by 3.

N......3...6...9.......--->

d.....24...25..26......---> Answer

Nd....72..150..234....---->
