In an African savannah, a pride of lions hunted and ate a certain number of deer over a period of time. Each lion in the pride ate the same number of deer. This number was greater than the total number of lions.

If there are at least 5 lions and they ate a total of 9,919 deer, then how many lions can be in the pride?

A 76
B 87

I guess the answer for this question would be Option (c).

Reason: 91 can be divided by 1, 7, 13, and 91. Since 1 is less than 5 we can ignore 1. And assuming any of the other number as the number of lions in the pride, the answer to the question can be easily calculated since any number (7,13,91) can completely divide 9919 and the result is greater than (7/13/91).

ATLEAST 5 lions and 9,919 deers...
9919=1*7*13*109
If lions are 7, they could have eaten 13*109 each
If lions were 13, they could have eaten 7*109
If 109, then 7*13=91..

So answers can be different, out of which 91 is given so D

But wordings of question should be
" How many lions CAN be there?"

vitorpteixeira , would you consider, please, changing the number to 9,919 or 9919?

I have never seen "thousands" denoted with a decimal point. I had no idea where to start! (And it did not occur to me that the number might mean thousands. In the U.S., a decimal only ever marks off a decimal.)
