Arturo and Lauren want to split a bag of fun-sized candy, and decide to use the divider-chooser method. The bag contains 100 Snickers, 100 Milky Ways, and 100 Reese's, which Arturo values at $4, $5, and $3 respectively. (This means Arturo values the 100 Snickers together at $4, or $0.04 for 1 Snickers)

If Lauren is the divider, and in one half puts:

45 Snickers
30 Milky Ways
75 Reese's

What is the value of this half in Arturo's eyes? $

Is this a fair share?

Total value in Arturo's eyes is 4+5+3 =12

 

45 snickers = 45 x .04 = 1.8

30MW        =30 x .05  = 1.5

75 R           =75 x .03 = 2.25       Total = 5.55    

  Arturo will obviously think this is a little short of 1/2  the value (which would be 6.00)
