Tombstone Geography

The five small towns in the area surrounding Tombstone have populations of 25, 40, 75, 100, and 150. They are located (not necessarily respectively) one, two, three, five, and ten miles outside Tombstone as the crow (or buzzard) flies. Can you figure out the population of each town, and its distance from Tombstone?

  1. The combined populations of Coyote Canyon and Thirsty Hollow equal the population of Cactusville.
  2. Brambleburg has a larger population than Lonesome Gulch, and it is two miles further from Tombstone than is Cactusville.
  3. Lonesome Gulch isn't the town closest to Tombstone.
  4. Thirsty Hollow, which isn't the smallest of the five towns, is 15 miles from Brambleburg as the crow flies.
