**Reiny**, Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 8:31pmassuming there is one mom and one dad, let the number of kids be x

2(12) + 5x = 56

5x = 32

x = 32/5 , well, that's no good

let the number of adults be x, number of kids be y

12x + 5y = 56

looking for integer solutions,

let y = 4

12x + 20 = 56

x = 3

3 adults, and 4 kids
