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

    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:
    or, 6x+6=60
    or, 6x=54
    or, x=9
