Three people picked 65 apples altogether. At the first tree they each picked the same number of apples. At the second tree they each picked 3 times as many as they picked at the first tree. When they finished at the third tree, the group had 5 times as many apples as they had when they started at that tree. At the fourth tree the group picked just 5 apples. How many apples did each person pick at the first tree?

1 each.
Giving three apples total, followed by picking three times that many at tree 2 to make twelve, five times 12 is 60 after tree 3, 60+ "group" 5 = 65.
