I want to solve a system of the following equations but it doesn't work? Would somebody give me a hint, where my mistake is or if it's not possible to solve this system with mathematica,please?
Solve[
{(a1-a2)-(f1-f2)*116992^4==0,
4*(a1-a2)+(b1-b2)*116992==0,
4*(a1-a2)+(d1-d2)*116992^3==0,
6*(a1-a2)-(c1-c2)*116992^2==0,
(a2-a3)-(f2-f3)*187010^4==0,
4*(a2-a3)+(b2-b3)*187010==0,
4*(a2-a3)+(d2-d3)*187010^3==0,
6*(a2-a3)-(c2-c3)*187010^2==0,
20000 == a1+b1+c1+d1+f1,
50000==a1+b1*116992+c1*116992^2+d1*116992^3+f1*116992^4,
100000==a3+b3*187010+c3*187010^2+d3*187010^3+f3*187010^4,

28631==1/116992*(a1*(116992-1)+b1/2*(116992^2-1^2)+c1/3*(116992^3-1^3) +d1/4*(116992^4-1^4)+f1/5*(116992^5-1^5)),
61248==1/(187010-116992)*(a2*(187010-116992)+b2/2*(187010^2-116992^2) +c2/3*(187010^3-116992^3)+d2/4*(187010^4-116992^4)+f2/5*(187010^5-116992^5)),
