If we take the total no. of bees as x then we can easily from the following eqn. :(x/2)^(1/2) +8x/9+2 =x. solve it and you'll get the answer as 72. I am sure this is the answer,... so go for it .....and yes after solving the quad eqn. You'll get 9/2 as well .... so we just discard it ... because the no. of bees cannot be 4.5 (x/2)^(1/2) means under root of x/2 .. okies
