Puzzle

US Version

"I have this old necklace, but the thing is, it's not really my taste anymore. So I decided to sell it, but when I was getting appraised the other day, I realized something weird.

"Each stone is worth a different amount, but if I break the necklace in three places, the three gem strands will be worth the same amount as one another. Can you believe it? Here, see if you can figure out where you gotta cut it to make that happen."

UK Version

"I have this old necklace that's not really to my taste anymore. I decided to sell it but, when I was getting it valued the other day, I realised something strange.

Each stone is worth a different amount, but there's a way for me to break the necklace up into three smaller ones that are all worth the same total. Can you work out where to make the cuts?"

You'll have a tough time if you just dive straight into adding up different strings of gems. There's an order you need to proceed in. Why don't you start by adding up the total value of the necklace?

US Version

If you added the totals correctly, you should have gotten $7,800. You want to divide this total into three sections of equal worth, so each section of the necklace in your solution will need to be worth $2,600.

UK Version

The total value of the necklace is £7,800. You want to divide the necklace into three sections of equal value, so each section of the necklace in your solution will need to be worth £2,600.

US Version

No single strand will contain more than one of three stones worth 1,000 or more dollars. Coincidentally, each of these three stones will form an end for each strand.

Now all you need to figure out is which side of each 1,000-plus dollar stone connects to another stone.
