Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 11/21/2005

Gabe was having a terrible time lining up his tin soldiers. He didn't have all that many, fewer than one hundred, but he couldn't seem to arrange them on parade properly. He kept having odd numbers left over. He tried rows of five and there were four left over; he tried rows of six - four left over; rows of 7 - one left over. He finally decided to have a very narrow parade and arranged them four abreast. That worked. What's the smallest number of toy soldiers he could have had?
