Splitting the camels
The person who will share the camels gives a camel to the 3 children. So they will have 36 camels.
For the first one is given half of the camels (18 camels). He will make a profit, since his share would be 17.5 camels.
For the second, it is given the third part (12 camels). He will make a profit because his share would be 11 and little.
For the third is given the ninth part (4 camels). He will make a profit, because his share would be 3 and little.
18 + 12 + 4 = 34
Then there was the camel donated to them one more. Then the person responsible for dividing the camels is given what is left, ie 2 camels.
