Problem of $11
There are 2 employees, Carl and Crag, and 1 employer Bradley.
Carl and Crag was working and now they want to rest and eat.
Carl went home and brought 7 pizzas.
Crag went home and brought 4 pizzas.
In size all 11 pizzas are the same.
Bradley saw them and told, please give me pizza. I am hungry too.
They cut every pizza in 3 same pieces, and they ate all.
Every man ate 11 pieces. Suddenly Bradley found 11 dollars in his pocket and gave it to them and said: I'll give you this money, because you fed me.
Carl told Crag: I must have 7 dollars, because I brought 7 pizzas, 4 dollars is yours.
Crag told Crag: All of us ate the same pieces, so this 11 dollars must divide on 2, 5.5 dollars for you, and 5.5 dollars for me.
They were very very dissatisfied.
Somewhere was a wise man who divided this 11 dollars wisely for these 2 guys.
How did this wise man divide the 11 dollars?

Carl effectively sold Bradley 10 pizza pieces (7 × 3 - 11 = 10).
Crag effectively sold Bradley 1 pizza piece (4 × 3 - 11 = 1).
The wise man decided that Carl should receive 10 dollars and Crag should receive 1 dollar.

The total cost was \$11, \$7 by Carl, \$4 by Craig. Pizzas were shared equally, so Carl should get \$7 and Craig \$4.
