Two brothers were left some money, amounting to an exact number of pounds, to divide between them. DEE undertook the division. "But your heap is larger than mine!" cried DUM...

### Lower Bound

What would you get if you continued this sequence of fraction sums? 1/2 + 2/1 = 2/3 + 3/2 = 3/4 + 4/3 =

### Sum Equals Product

The sum of the numbers 4 and 1 [1/3] is the same as the product of 4 and 1 [1/3]; that is to say 4 + 1 [1/3] = 4 × 1 [1/3]. What other numbers have the sum equal to the product and can this be so for any whole numbers?

##### Stage: 3 Short Challenge Level:
$$\frac{2}{3} \times \frac{5}{6} \times X = \frac{3}{4} \times \frac{4}{5} \times Y$$ $$\frac{5X}{9} = \frac{3Y}{5}$$ $$25X = 27Y$$ $$\frac{X}{Y} = \frac{27}{25}$$
