factors of 435: 5 (87) so five folks one 27 committees. (or 87 folks [not allowed] one 5 committees).

factors of 435: 15 (29) would that work? 15 folks on 29 committees?

Any others?

M = Members.

C = Committees.

3M/C * 145C = 435 Members.

5M/C * 87C = 435.

15M/C * 29C = 435.

29M/C * 15C = 435.

a. 3,5,15,and 29M/C are possible.

b. 145,87,29, and 15C, respectively.
