A group of people hired a boat for 1200 dollars and each person paid an equal amount for it. Five people did not turn up, so each person on the trip had to pay 8 dollars more. Find the number of people in the group who went on the trip.

x = original # of people

 

1200  /x   = amount each person paid

 

x - 5     new number of people

1200 / ( x-5) = new amount =

 

1200 / (x-5)    =   1200/x   + 8            solve for 'x'
