(

Money Puzzles)

agreed that they should be divided in proportion to their ages, which

together amounted to 171/2 years. Now the bag contained 770 nuts, and

as often as Herbert took four Robert took three, and as often as Herbert

took six Christopher took seven. The puzzle is to find out how many nuts

each had, and what were the boys' respective ages.
