CJ Buck, passed away three days ago.
CJ Buck had made a fortune writing adventure-fantasy novels loved by millions the world over.
CJ left an inheritance to you,
CJ left us
a Maui home (assessed value $475,000),
a Fiji island (assessed value $750,000), and
a yacht (assessed value $325,000).
But there's a catch.
That we actually receive this inheritance is contingent upon our dividing
up the inheritance items in such a way that:
- We each get at least what we believe is a third of the inheritance;
- We cannot sell the Maui home, Fiji island, or the yacht, and divide up the sale
profits in an attempt to satisfy the first condition.
Should we be unable to meet these
conditions, the executor has been instructed
to give all the assets to the Charles Manson defense fund.
Nobody wants to see that happen.
Is it possible for us to divide
the given assets as specified?
How can we do it?
Is there any division that is the best?
I know a method to find
a fair division of the assets, so let's look at that first...
