Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 4/19/2006

The engineering department was arranging for a rather expensive catered lunch to bid farewell to their retiring colleague. They calculated that it would cost each person $30. One good mathematician remarked, "It's lucky that there aren't five fewer of us to split the bill, or it would be $10 more from each." How many engineers split the bill, and how much did it cost?
