Moriarty’s Marvellous Moustache Mixture Scam

Good  morning my dear friends.

Holmes didn’t wait  for me yesterday so I couldn’t write to you. He is extremely active and impatient. I have a simple puzzle for you:

Before being aprehended by Sherlock Holmes, Professor Moriarty had conned a number of people out of a total 3895 pounds in one particular scam. A Marvellous Moustache Mixture which provides the buyer a fashionable moustache even if he was beardless. Each person had lost the same amount of money to the evil professor. If they were more 50 people, but less than 100 involved in he scam, can you work out exactly how many people were conned by the Professor and how much they each lost?

It is easy!.  I am waiting for your messages!

  1. Hello Doctor Watson:
    The number of people must finish in 0 or 5 because it will divide 3895 pounds
    Good Bye
