The handball team

In my town, seven friends have formed a mixed handball team to participate in the official league of the province. After our first game we all finished exhausted so each of the girls drank four glasses of water while the boys took 7 each. The coach took 9 glasses.

In the end, 43 glasses of water were counted in total.

How many players are in the team?

Solution

We remove the 9 glasses of the coach and we have left that the 7 players consumed 34 glasses this does five girls with a total of 20 glasses and two boys with a total of 14 glasses.
