THE BAG OF NUTS.





(Money Puzzles)
Three boys were given a bag of nuts as a Christmas present, and it was

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.
