'Chocs, Mints, Jellies' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

Show menu


In a bowl there are $12$ sweets. There are $4$ Chocolates, $3$ Jellies and $5$ Mints.

There are three children who would like to share the sweets.

Dan cannot eat Chocolate.
Sid does not like Mints.
Anna likes them all.

Find a way to share the sweets equally between the three children so they each get the kind they like.

Is there more than one way to do it?
