**The Farmer's Will**

A farmer died leaving his will

17 horses to his three children,

Ann, Bob and Charlie.

to Bob a third of them and

to Charlie a ninth of them.

**Answer :**

The children will borrow 1 horse from the neighbor,

So they now have 18 horses.

Now they will share as per the will.

Ann (half the horses) = 9 horses(half of 18)

Bob (third of them) = 6 horses(third of 18)

Charlie (ninth of them) = 2 horses(ninth of 18)

So now they have shared 9+6+2 = 17 horses.

and they will again return the remaining 1 horse to the neighbor.
