Density of states and absorption spectrum of narrow quantum wells containing a small number of free electrons and subject to a high magnetic field are calculated numerically. The effect of an additional, second electron on the photoexcited electron-hole pair is analyzed. In density of states, the exciton-electron interaction fills the gaps between the Landau levels and yields additional discrete peaks corresponding to bound trions. In absorption, interaction with the additional free electron has no effect on the position or intensity of the main sequence of excitonic peaks. However, it gives rise to additional weaker trion peaks, both in the lowest and higher Landau levels.
