Let the total number of guests be x.

Number of bowls of dhal = \( \frac{x}{2} \)

Number of bowls of rice = \( \frac{x}{3} \)

Number of bowls of meat = \( \frac{x}{4} \)

Therefore, \( \frac{x}{2} + \frac{x}{3} + \frac{x}{4} = 65 \) \( \Rightarrow \frac{6x + 4x + 3x}{12} = 65 \) \( \Rightarrow \frac{13x}{12} = 65 \) \( \Rightarrow 13x = 65 * 12 \) \( \Rightarrow 13x = 65 * 12 \) \( \Rightarrow 13x = 780 \) \( \Rightarrow x = 780/13 = 60 \)

Therefore, the total number of guests present at the party was 60.
