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?
