Let the number of calls in the 3rd evening=C

The number of calls in the first evening =C - 5

The number of calls in the 2nd evening =3C

**C + C - 5 + 3C =95, solve for C C = 20 calls in the 3rd eveningg 20 - 5 = 15 calls in the first evening 3 x 20 = 60 calls in the 2nd evening. 20 + 15 + 60 = 95 calls received in 3 evenings.**
