A generous man set aside a certain sum of money for equal distribution

weekly to the needy of his acquaintance. One day he remarked, "If there are

five fewer applicants next week, you will each receive two dollars more." Unfortunately,

instead of there being fewer there were actually four more persons

applying for the gift.

"This means," he pointed out, "that you will each receive one dollar less."

How much did each person receive at that last distribution?
