Puzzle Details

They decided to donate some of their fish to the local community, 1,672 people in all.

To each person over 50 they gave 16 fish and to each person under 50 they gave 96 fish.

Only 3/4 of the over 50s collected their haddock and only 1/8 of the under 50s collected their fish.

How many fish did the fisher distribute it total?

As only 3/4 of the over 50s claimed 16 fish, this averages out to 12 fish each.

Similarly only 1/8 of the under 50s claimed 96 fish, this again averages out to be 12 fish each.

Therefore the total number of fish was 1,672 x 12 = 20,064.

It doesn't matter how many over/under 50s there are.
