Puzzle - Hint

?A local fisherman caught a large trawler load of haddock.

He decided to donate some of his fish to the local community, 1,672 people in all.

To each person over 50 he gave 16 fish and to each person under 50 he gave 96 fish.

Only 3/4 of the over 50s collected their haddock and only 1/8 of the under 50s collected their fish.

How many fish did the fisherman distribute it total?
