Lisa had 60 lollies to share. She gave each of her friends the same number of lollies and had 5 left over for herself. If Lisa had fewer lollies than any of her friends, how many friends did Lisa share her lollies with?
Now we know the number of friends multiplyied by how many lollies +5 must equal 60.
now we subtract 5 from both sides to get
We also know that her friends each got more lollies then her so n > 5
55 has only two factors
So n must be 11 and f must be 5.
So she has five friends and each of them got 11 lollies.
I hope this helps.
