Problem of the Week
Problem A
Tents Situation

Two years ago, Range Lake North Public School took its grade 3 and grade 4 classes on a camping trip. There were 41 students going on the trip. They took 9 tents with them.

Each tent slept either 3 campers or 5 campers. Every tent was completely filled and every camper was in a tent. How many 5-person tents did they bring with them?
