A hunter met two shepherds, one of whom had three loaves and the other, five loaves. All the loaves were the same size. The three men agreed to share the eight loaves equally between them. After they had eaten, the hunter gave the shepherds eight bronze coins as payment for his meal. How should the two shepherds fairly divide this money?

all of them ate ... 1/3*8 = 2.666 which means shepherd with 3 loaves gave 0.333 loaves to hunder and other with 5 gave 2.333 loaves so i guess (0.333)/2.666*8 and (2.333)/2.666*8

okay easy-peasy.. the hunter with the lesser no. of loaves should keep one bronze, and the other one should keep 7 bronze coins.
