Quantitative reasoning

The administration has formed a 26 person planning committee. There are 5 times as many administrators as there are students and five more faculty members than students. How many students are there on the committee?

  • Quantitative reasoning -

    Let a = administrators
    Let f = faculty
    Let s = students
    -----------------
    a + f + s = 26
    5s = a
    s+5 = f

    solve for s,a,f.
