I didn’t think to take a picture at the time I divided them up, but each box was full to the brim. And when I divided the fruit up, I did it exactly equally. I counted out the cherries by ten’s until I had just a few left, then I counted them out by one’s. It came out with no remainders. Notice the eating pattern seen here; some eat faster and some slower.
The other day I bought a special treat for our family: fresh cherries at $3.49 a pound. Ouch! I knew from past experience that some members of the family can inhale the entire bag single-handedly, leaving others in the family with nary a taste of the treat. So I set out to solve the problem, and here is what I came up with:I divided up the bag into four containers, one for each family member. Each lid has one person’s name on it. That’s their box of cherries, and they are free to eat it as quickly or as slowly as they choose. When their’s is gone, it’s gone. No raiding of other’s allowed.
