A man is on his death bed. He has two sons. All these years, he has treated them equally and has not put any sort of discrimination between them. Now, he owns a land which he wants to divide equally between his sons before he takes his final breath. The only problem is that the land is not in any symmetrical shape and thus canít simply be divided into two equal halves.
Can you figure out a method to divide the land without going through all the extensive measurements such that both sons are happy with their share of land ?
The only way to divide the land without measuring is to ask one son to divide the land in two parts and then ask the other son to choose from the two lands first. In this way, there is no chance of cheating and the division will be almost fair.
