No formal education is necessary to answer that question without problems. Basic high school maths suffices.I would only object to using "per person" in the task description - I think it's indeed incorrect, but certainly it shouldn't prevent them from solving it.my high school maths final was more difficult?

No wonder they hired a physicist to do them...
