Let the number of rows be x and number of students in a row be y.
Total number of students in the class
= Number of rows x Number of students in a row
= xy
According to the question,
Total number of students = (x - 2) (y + 1)
xy = (x - 2) (y + 1)

Total number of students = (x + 3) (y - 1)
xy =  (x + 3) (y - 1)

Simplify the above two equations to find the values of x and y.
