22/02/2013 - Sharing Sandwiches (***)

This puzzle is rated 3 star (hard).


Fred, Bill and Gary went for a hike.  Fred took 5 sandwiches, Bill took 3 sandwiches and Gary took none.

When they sat down to eat Fred cut each of his sandwiches into 3 equal parts.  Bill also cut his sandwiches into 3 equal parts.

Fred, Bill and Gary each ate 8 sandwich parts, but because Gary was feeling guilty he gave Fred and Bill 1 pound for each sandwich part he ate.

How should the £8 be split between Fred and Bill?

Check the solutions page for the correct answer.
