    ideally you would divide enrollment equally 199/6 = 33 1/6 with 1 remainder, the largest section would have 34 students

    I keep reading it but it makes no sense to me. Wouldn't you say that the biggest enrollment would be 199-5=194 and that the smallest possible number of students in that section would be 1? But that makes no sense either. Is there any way you could restate the question for me?

    what arrangement gives the largest section containing the fewest number of students in your example the largest section has 194 students in my example the largest section has 34 students you have to find the smallest possible section which is still bigger than other 5.
