    Daytripping

    When some daytrippers started off on their annual seaside trip, each minibus carried exactly the same number of people.

    Half way there, 10 minibuses broke down, so each remaining minibus carried one more person.

    On the way back, 15 more minibuses broke down, so there were 3 more people in each minibus than when they started out in the morning.
    How many people went to the seaside and in how many minibuses?

    After the first breakdown, 90 minibuses with 10 passengers each reached the seaside.
    After the second breakdown, 75 minibuses with 12 passengers each returned home.</span hide>
