OK so my friend asked me how to solve this question i didn't know how but tried anyway and got the right answer but i want to know if i did it correctly

6 boys are working on 5 go carts. each boy works on more than one cart. it takes one weekend to make one cart. there are 8 conflicts represented by edges on the vertex edge graph. how many weekends will it take?
the answer is 3
the graph looks like this

a-b
a-e
a-d
b-c
b-e
