  1. "each of 30 people brought 3 guests" accounts for 30 + 90 or 120 people

    "each of the 20 brought 2 guest" accounts for 20 + 40 or 60 guests

    "each of 40 people brought 1 guest" accounts for 40 + 40 = 80 people

    total so far: 120+60+80 = 260

    leaving 325-260 or 65 guests who came just by themselves.
