Team Travel


The 57 players on four soccer teams traveled to a soccer tournament in Plainville. Each car carrying the members of the same team had the same number of players in it.

  • The 15 players on the Barracudas rode three to a car.
  • The Sharks and the Dolphins had three fewer players on each team than the Barracudas had.
  • In an odd number of cars, the Sharks had one more player in each car than the Dolphins.
  • The Stingrays had six players per car.
In all, how many cars did the soccer players take to the tournament?
