Twice the number of people eating equals half of the people who are laughing; if twenty people are thinking, and all of the people thinking are also all of the people laughing... and a quarter of the people laughing are also yawning, then how many people are yawning? How many people are eating?

the trick is to keep only one variable- and use coefficients to represent other groups

Good one, I like this kind, a math teaser where the real problem to solve is the language!
2 thumbs up!

Good Job! Very interesting. I love making equations...that I know my classmates probably wouldn't be able to solve.

Not much of a teaser, nor much of a math problem. Obfuscation does not make a teaser. Just following the problem meant I already had the answer when I finished reading the question.
