For a large wedding dinner, 150 people volunteered to bring pies. However, 23 of the volunteers forgot to bring pies. In total 89 apple pies and 75 pumpkin pies were contributed. If the most pies brought by any one person was two, and if no one brought two of one kind, how many brought only a pumpkin pie?

150-23 = 127 people brought pies.

75 + 89 = 164 total pies.

If everyone brought 1 pie, 37 pies are left, so 37 people must've brought another pie. 

75 - 37 = 38 people only brought pumpkin pies.
