3 guesses to Three Brothers Live On A Farm

  • Crabman

    There’s a total of 120 sacks, so the three of them should get 40 each. Easiest way to do this is if Ben gives/sells him 35 sacks and Adam sells him 5.

    If 40 sacks are worth $1400, they are $35 each, so he gives Adam $175 & Ben $1225

  • Crabman, you are today’s winner!
    Every farmer’s part is 1/3(45+75) = 40 sacks. Charlie paid $1400 for 40 sacks, then 1 sack costs $1400/40 = $35/sack. Adam got $35*(45-40)=35*5 = $175. Ben got $35*(75-40)=35*35 = $1225.
    Answer: Ben $1225, Adam $175

    The current price per bushel of wheat is under $5 – and a bushel of wheat weighs 60 lbs.
    So if each bag was 120 lbs, and it was some seed with similar weight to wheat, they are paying $35/2 per sack or $17.50 per bushel for their seed (over 3x the value of wheat) – I wonder what they are growing…?
