    I have a deck of cards from which some are missing.

    If I deal them equally between nine people, then I have two cards to spare.
    If I deal them equally between four people, then I have three cards to spare.
    If I deal them equally between seven people, then I have five cards to spare.
    There are normally 52 cards in the deck.

    How many cards are missing?

    -Ray.
