**MathMate**, Monday, July 4, 2011 at 4:21pmThe number of members in each committee must divide 435.

So let's us factorize 435 to get:

435=3*5*29

So the possible committee sizes are 3, 5 and 29.

Finally, divide 435 by the committee size to get the number of committees corresponding to each size.
