There are 42 integers in a group. If there are 5 times as many odd integers as there are even integers, how many numbers are even integers?

**Answer:**

Let x be the number of even integers. Then odd integers are 5 times than even, or 5x. Since the group of integers are made of both odd and even integers, we can write as:

x (even integers) + 5x (odd integers) = 42 (integers in the group).

or, 6x = 42,

or, x = 7.

**Final answer: there are 7 even integers.**
