Dividing the Smart Kids

The Puzzler


RAY: This is short and sweet, unlike last week's puzzler.

My freshman class in college was over a 1000 students; in fact it was 1058. And half of them were smart enough to advance beyond first-semester calculus. So that whole group of kids was then allowed to enroll in Calculus 2. Each of those sections of advanced calculus had the same number of students. How many sections were there?

Seems like not enough information, right? But there is.

Think you know? Drop Ray a note!
