# The Village and 100 Loaves of Bread

by Andrew

(New York)

The relief truck arrived at the village to distribute much-needed food. The small village had a population of exactly 100 people. The truck contained 100 loaves of bread, and the food was about to be distributed evenly when the village chieftain suddenly stopped the proceedings.

“The elders of the village have decided that each child will receive half a loaf of bread, each woman two loaves and each man three,” bellowed the chieftain.

“But we may not have enough bread in those proportions,” argued a relief worker.

“You have 100 loaves?” asked the chieftain.

“Yes,” replied the worker.

“Then that is exactly enough.”

How many men, women and children lived in the village?
