Some students planned a picnic. The budget for food was Rs. 500. But 5 of these failed to go & thus the cost of food for each student increased by Rs. 5. How many students attended the picnic?

Let the original number of students be *x.*

Total budget of the food = Rs 500

Original budget of each student =

If 5 students failed to go to the picnic, then

Number of student who went to the picnic = *x* – 5

New budget of each student =

New budget of each student – Original budget of each student = Rs 5 (Given)

Number of students who went to the picnic = *x *– 5 = 25 – 5 = 20
