    Oops had to redo my answer after turning my brain on, lol, I think this is the right answer now, but maybe not lol.

    Bob himself invited 5 - the other 320 people were invited by others.

    5 Bob Invited

    20 Invited By The Original 5 ( Since Those 5 Could Invite 4 Each )

    60 Invited By The 20 ( Since Those 20 Could Invite 3 Each )

    120 Invited By The 60 ( Since Those 60 Could Invite 2 Each )

    120 Invited by the 120 ( since those 120 could invite 1 each )

    For a grand total of 325 attending the party, of which only 5 were the ones that Bob extended the invitation personally.
