    Collecting Shot Glasses

    Roger had three cabinets where he stored his shot glass collection:
    - The right cabinet held 1/5 of the total number of shot glasses.
    - The middle cabinet held <font color=blue>some number</font color=blue> of sevenths (n/7) of the total number of shot glasses.
    - The left cabinet has 303 shot glasses in it.
    [b]How many shot glasses are in the entire collection?

    I make it <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>101 x 35 = 3535, with 5/7 in the middle cabinet: 707 + 2525 + 303</font color=yellow></span hi>

    I get <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>3535 - boils down to 28x-5nx=10605. Only integral or non-negative value of n is 5</font color=yellow></span hi>
