Three children aged 16, 13 and 8 are given an allowance by their father. Their father has £200, made of only £10 bills. The allowance is based on the child's age; the 16 year old should get double the 8 year old. How can the father distribute the £10 notes fairly?

2 Answers

They do not expect you to solve this. It is unsolvable, there is not fair way to distribute the notes. They're looking for you to suggest an algorithm that will calculate what they would get hypothetically (if there was no £10 note constraint), and then distribute the notes based on who would 'lose' the least if their amount is rounded down to the nearest £10. It's about fairness. Don't get caught up on an ideal solution.

4£ to the 8 years old. 8£ to the 13 and 16 years old.
