Indian heritage by Axel Veldens
The Indian Halef had three sons and a herd of 12 elephants. Halef, feeling his end near, made his will and decreed that Amir, the eldest, should have half of the flock, Bukan, the second-born, a quarter, and Chandresh, the youngest, a sixth.
A will is an important matter and at that time in India there was a very strict legal regime for it. These stated that if, for any reason, a will cannot be executed exactly as written, the heirs receive nothing and everything falls to the state. Incorrect information was subject to severe penalties.
That night Halef died and, surprisingly, his favorite elephant died too, leaving the herd at 11 in the morning.
The sons realized that if there were 11 elephants, the will was not enforceable, because 11 cannot be divided by 2 or 4 or 6, so each of them had to get nothing. They were desperate and didn't know what to do.
Then an Indian magician, a fakir, appeared and said I am Ben Ali and not only familiar with magic, but also with arithmetic. They also call me the man with the colorful elephant.
And indeed, he had a colorful elephant with him, which was his mascot and advertising medium. He was always on the road with this elephant and thus attracted great attention to himself and his plans. He also said to the three brothers, trust me, your father was my friend. I will help you. ...
In the detailed instructions, you will learn how Ben Ali solved the dilemma of the three brothers, as well as tips and hints for dressing the dry number problem in an entertaining routine.
