    Answer: Nightingale house has 9 students, Parrot house has 36 students and Peacock house has 15 students.

    Explanation:
    Let the number of students in Nightingale house be x.
    Therefore number of students in Parrot house is 4x and number of students in Peacock house is x+6.
    By the problem:
    x+4x+x+6=60
    or, 6x+6=60
    or, 6x=54
    or, x=9
