I have a deck of cards from which some are missing. If I deal them equally among nine people, I have two cards to spare. If I deal them equally among four people, I have three cards to spare. If I deal them among seven people, I have five cards to spare. There are normally 52 cards in the deck.

How many cards are missing?

It could also be 11 cards, so you were short 41

There can't be 11 cards since if you can't deal that out evenly to 7 people and have 5 cards to spare.
