Dividing His Flocks : Solution


The rancher had seven sons and fifty-six cows.

The eldest son took two cows, and his wife took six. The next son took three cows, and his wife five. the next son took four and his wife four, and so on down to the seventh son who took eight cows, leaving none for his wife. Curiously, each family now has eight cows, so each took one of the seven horses to make their livestock of equal value.
