A Classic Car Auction

The Puzzler

RAY: This is from my classic car series.

Last month Tommy dragged me, kicking and screaming, to one of those classic car auctions. I guess he wanted to see what it would take to get his Fiat up to 'auction grade' so to speak.

Including the two of us, there were 30 potential buyers present that day. Ten of the buyers bought fewer than 6 cars. Eight of the buyers bought more than 7 cars. Five buyers bought more than 8 cars and 1 buyer bought more than 9.

How many of those 30 buyers who were there that day, bought 6, 7, 8, or 9 cars? And I should remind listeners that there were dozens of cars there.

Think you know? Drop Ray a note!
