Question description



Some people sat in a circle, so that each had two neighbors and each had a certain number of dollars.The first had one dollar more than the second, who had one dollar more than the third, and so on. The first gave one dollar to the second, who gave two dollars to the third, and so on, each giving one dollar more than he or she received, for as long as possible.There were then two neighbors, one of whom had four times as much as the other.

-How many people were there?

-How much had the poorest person at first?

I have been working on this problem and ended up with 6 people and $2

is this correct?

i also came up with 7 people and $2 dollars.

I need to break it down properly.

thank you for your help
