Three times more English teachers than teachers went on a field trip to England. How many teachers were there among the 56 sightseers, if not only teachers and teachers of the English language went on an excursion?

Let x be the number of English teachers on excursions, then 3 * x is the number of teachers on excursions.
Let’s make an equation, knowing the total number of teachers and female teachers on the excursion: x + 3 * x = 56.
Let’s solve the equation:
x + 3x = 56,
4x = 56,
x = 14.
Let’s find the number of teachers: 14 * 3 = 52.
Answer: there were 52 teachers among the sightseers.
