(Money Puzzles)

found that exactly the same fraction of each coin had been broken away.
Now, assuming that the original intrinsic value of these coins was the

pound, the shilling worth a shilling, and the penny worth a penny--what
proportion of each coin has been lost if the value of the three
remaining fragments is exactly one pound?
