    The WILL (Puzzle)

    A rich old Arab has three sons. When he died, he willed his 17 camels to the sons, to be divided as follows: First Son to get 1/2 of the camels, Second Son to get 1/3rd of the camels, Third Son to get 1/9th of the camels. The sons are sitting there trying to figure out how this can possibly be done, when a very old wise man goes riding by. They stop him and ask him to help them solve their problem. Without hesitation he divides the camels properly and continues riding on his way. How did he do it?

    ok here goes
    the wise man adds his camel to make it 18 camels
    now 18/2 is 9
    ist son gets 9
    18/3 is 6
    2nd son gets 6
    18/9 is 3
    3rd son gets 2

    9+6+2=17
    wise man rides away on his camel and evry1 is happy

    that was easy

      Here is the answer... no C and match with yours... !

      The old man temporarily added his camel to the 17, making a total of 18 camels.

      1/2 = 9

      1/3 = 6

      1/9 = 2

      for a total of 17. He then takes his camel back and rides away......
