Summer is almost over. School starts next week, and so five families decide to squeeze in one more summer holiday before school starts. Each family chose to travel to Cape Cod, Massachusetts and spent the week renting a summer cottage, each in a different town. By some odd twist of fate, each family had either five or six family members and stayed on Cape Cod for either five or six days. Determine the surname (last name) of each family, the number of members in each family, the length of each familyís stay, and the town on Cape Cod where each family rented a cottage.
1. The Dennison family spent the same number of days on vacation as they had family members, but it wasnít the same amount as the Harding family spent on vacation.
2. The family who stayed in Harwich had more family members than days they spent on vacation.
3. The Baker family stayed longer than the McFarland family, but neither family stayed in Eastham. The Harding family had less family members than the family that stayed in Falmouth.
4. The family that stayed in Provincetown wasnít the Harding family or the Baker family. Two families had the same number of members as the days they spent on vacation.
5. The Smith family stayed in Hyannis. Three families had six family members and three families stayed on vacation for five days.
6. Only one family had five family members and spent six days on vacation. The Dennison family didnít stay in Harwich.
