Solution for the Problem 11 - The Fish Dinner

Answer:

The man will pay $7.00 to the first fisherman and $1.00 to the second fisherman.

Solution:

Each of the three men got 8/3 of the dinner. The first fisherman, after securing 8/3 of the dinner for himself gave the rest of his catch to the third man.

5 8/3 = 7/3

So, the first fisherman gave him 7/3 of the dinner.

Simmilarly, the second fisherman gave him 1/3 of the dinner, since:

3 8/3 = 1/3

Hence, the man will pay $7.00 to the first fisherman and only $1.00 to the second fisherman.
