Let the original number of persons be* n.*

∴ Amount received by each person =

If there were 15 more person,

then

Number of persons = *n *+ 15

New amount received by each person

Amount received by each person – New amount received by each person = Rs 30

Thus, the original number of persons is** 50.**
