A coach party called into the Jolly Quizmaster last week. The tour guide has a "little arrangement" with the publican - he gets 4% commission on all the drinks bought by the passengers and by him. The commission is taken in the form of drinks.
In the pub a pint of bitter costs £5.00, a pint of mild costs £4.60 and a gin costs £5.00. There is also an offer of a "Chaser" which is a pint of bitter and a gin at a reduced price of £9.60.
This particular coach party all bought drinks that cost exactly the same amount, and the tour guide had his usual Chaser. Once all the drinks had been poured and paid for, the publican poured a half pint of bitter and gave it to the tour guide with a surreptitious wink.
How many passengers were on the coach?
Answer at 9.00 on Monday
