5. 1/4 fewer computer of 80 employee means four-quarter of 80 employees, we calculate that by 1/4*80 = 20 (computer)
20 computers which are not enough for an old employee
to know how many computers to buy to cover old employee
80-20=60 computers
the question continues if the company hire 5% more employee(which is an increase in the employee)
5% of 80 = 4
4 (new employee)
old employee(84) plus + new employee(4) = 84
to get how many computer to cover but new and old employees
84-60 =24

recall, the question says each employee to has one computer
total employee = 84
total computer 60 old employee computers plus 24 additional computers = 84
