**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at 11:09pmSo the number has to be a multiple of 5 , between 45 and 200

when divided by 8 there is a remainder of 1

so it could be

49 57 65 73 81 89 97 105... 145 .... 185

when divided by 12 , there is a remainder of 1

so it could be

49 61 73 85 97 109 121 133 145 ... 205

the common number is all 3 restrictions is 145**So there were 145 students.**

check:

1. 145 divides evenly be 5

2. 145/8 = 18 with remainder of 1

3. 145/12 = 12 with a remainder of 1
