Time for dessert! You have a huge mound of strawberries to share between four children, A to D. You'd think it would be easy, but each of these picky children is very specific about the number of strawberries they'd like:
A: "I want one fewer than B."
B: "I want three times what C gets!"
C: "I want five fewer than A."
D: "I want half as many as A."
Bearing in mind that the plates hold up to nine strawberries, can you dish our the fruit and satisfy all four children's demands?
Read each child's statement carefully once again.
The most strawberries any child can get is nine, and it's pretty obvious from B;s statement that she;s a huge fan of strawberries.
If B gets nine strawberries, A gets eight, C gets three and D gets four.
