The queen asked her cook how many guests had attended a recent banquet. “I do not know, my lady” he said, “but every two guests shared a plate of fruit between them, every three used a bowl of broth among them, and every four shared a platter of beef. I used 65 serving dishes in all”. The queen was able to compute the number of guests using this information. How many guest were there?
