Greedy Elves Brain Twister

Greedy Elves Brain Twister - 4 September

There was once a troop of 5 elves. The 5 elves were very dedicated on finding the magical treasure of 1000 coins. However, being elves, they were super geniuses, very greedy and they did not hesitate in taking lives of other elves. The 5 elves were named Aye, Bee, Cee, Dee and Ee, ranked from high to low respectively, from Aye to Ee. One fine day, their efforts brought results and they found 1000 coins. Now they had to split it in between them as per their ranks. The lowest ranked elf has to make the proposal. If the proposal is accepted by majority, it is agreed, or the suggesting elf is killed.

  1. if you take a fair distribution it can be 300 250 200 150 100.
    This was EE will get nothing more, Since you need only majority to accept proposal suggest
    325 275 100 100 200
    here AA and BB are getting more than fair share so they dont need to complain . CC and DD will not agree , which is ok because finally it will be 3-2 vote on proposal
