Hey guys i need some help with this one, if you can help that would be great! Out of a swarm of bees one fifth part settled on a Kadamba blossom; one third on a Silihindra flower; three times the difference of those numbers flew to the bloom of a Kutaja. One bee, which remained, hovered about in the air. Tell me, charming woman, the number of bees???? . Hint: Call the number of bees and convert the story into an equation.

    There is no way to say how many bees there are total, because there are no distinguishing equivalences given to determine that. You can determine how many bees out of the bunch are unaccounted for, but that doesn't appear to be the question. (1/15 of the total swarm is unaccounted for it seems).
