The Pirate puzzle
5 pirates of different ages have a treasure of 100 gold coins.

 

 

On their ship, they decide to split the coins using this scheme:

The oldest pirate proposes how to share the coins, the OTHER pirates (not including the oldest) will vote for or against it.

If 50% or more of the pirates vote for it, then the coins will be shared that way. Otherwise, the pirate proposing the scheme will be thrown overboard, and the process is repeated with the pirates that remain.

Assuming that all 5 pirates are intelligent, rational, greedy, and do not wish to die, (and are rather good at math for pirates) what will happen?

Can you bring it up to my room please?

Even your dads getting the hump now!
For the last time come down here or you’re grounded.
Grounded I can’t be I’m going to lexis house tomorrow.
Here I am. What is that?
Ice berg lettuce, pasta and chicken and for dessert jam roley poly.
Jam roley poly my favorite.
Knives go in the draw not the floor.
Lucy did it don’t moan at me.
Mum you always moan at me.
No I don’t April you never listen to me.
Oh leave me alone, don’t talk to me.
Please don’t get moody with me.
Quickly she ran up the stairs crying.
Right she’s not getting her jam roley poly now.
Stop talking about me mum.
Think about your actions and how you behave.
Ugh I hate my life right now.
Very good, now grow up
Where’s my jam roley poly?
Xenia has got it
You’re not having it.
Zip it you’re going to bed.

by Thomas McIntosh:

This invisibility cloak blanketing around us
Terrorising our society, closing down all schools, doctors, shops
Taking away our freedom
Twisting and winding briskly like a meander in the river
Toilet rolls and hugs
These will never be
Taken for granted again
To what end will
This catastrophe have?
The corona virus was never mentioned, but we all
Thought of the same
Thing
