A father left 17 Camels as an Asset for his Three Sons

🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪🐪

When the Father passed away, his sons whilst going thru some old papers, found his will. They called some family witnesses & opened the will.
The Will of the Father stated that the Eldest son should get Half of 17 Camels.

The Middle Son should be given 1/3rd of 17 Camels,

AND The Youngest Son should be given 1/9th of the 17 Camels.
Since it’s not possible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the sons started to fight with each other.

The finally decided to go to a wise man.

The wise man listened patiently about the Will .
The wise man, after giving this thought, brought one camel of his own and added the same to 17. That increased the total to 18 camels.

Now, he started reading the deceased father’s will.

Half of 18 = 9.
So he gave 9 camels
to the eldest son.
1/3rd of 18 = 6.
So he gave 6 camels
to the middle son.

1/9th of 18 = 2.
So he gave 2 camels
to the youngest son.

9 + 6 + 2 = 17

AND

This leaves 1 camel,
which the wise man took.

This left everyone happy and satisfied..
#MORAL: The attitude of negotiation & problem solving is to find the 18th camel i.e. the #CommonGround. Once a person is able to find the common ground, the issue is resolved. It is difficult at times.
However, to reach a solution, the first step is to believe that there is a solution.

If we think that there is no solution, we won’t be able to reach any!

If we believe that there’s is a solution, we will surely find the #18thCamel ..
