Problem P. 4101. (October 2008)

P. 4101. Several batteries, all having the same electromotive forces and the same internal resistances, were connected first in parallel and then in series and a resistor of resistance 129 \Omega was connected into the circuit. It was found that in case of the series connection the terminal voltage across each battery is 10% less than in case of the parallel connection. How many batteries were used?
