    dacoits wakes up, takes 1/5th of the bounty plus one
    for himself..the rest he puts back in the bag and goes
    to sleep..the next dacoit wakes up, does the same
    thing,ie takes 1/5th of the remaining bounty plus one
    for himself, puts the rest back and goes to sleep..the
    third,fourth and fifth dacoits do the same
    the morning, they all wake up and divide the bounty
    equally among may coins were there
    originally? The key to this question is to proceed
    from the options..see which number leaves a remainder
    1 when divided by 5 four times continuously and the
    fifth time divides it exactly.
