"seventy dollars,"said the rector."that's whats i want you children to spend at the bazaar .

"i'm told that there are five stalls,at which the prices are 1,2,3,4,and 5 dollars respectively. I want each of you to bring back three presents for your mother."

"From different stalls?"asked Margaret.

"not necessarily,"said the rector."But each of you must patronize two stalls;and you must not,collectively,patronize more than three stalls in all. Also you must so divide the money that no two of you spend the same amount and that no one spends as much as fourteen dollars."HOW MANY CHILDREN WENT TO THE BAZAAR?
AND WHICH STALLS DID THE PATRONIZE?eek
