Christmas Special 2014 - Deer Oh Deer


Pyramid of numbers

Santa's nine reindeer were sent to deliver some presents on Christmas Eve. Each reindeer got a different number of presents.

1: Prancer took twice as many presents as Cupid, and Dasher took twice as many presents as Vixen.
2: Blitzen took exactly the average number of presents.
3: Donner took one more present than Dancer, who took five more than Vixen.
4: Comet took two less presents than Cupid and 33 less than Prancer.
5: Donner took 27 presents less than Dasher.
6: Donner took half as many presents as Comet and Blitzen combined.
