Set it up this way:
Let the number of students be x
let the number of rows be y
then the number of students per row is x/y

This results in 2 equations from your data:

(x/y+1)(y-2) = x and
(x/y-1)(y+3 = x

Solve these two, gets a bit messy at first but it breaks down very nicely.

(I got x=60, y = 12)
