## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey, I once read this problem, but still cant find the solution to it.

It goes like this,

One women made a living by selling eggs, had 90 eggs which she wanted her three daughters to sell. So she gave her eldest daughter 10 eggs, 30 to her second daughter and 50 to the youngest.

'You better agree among yourselves', she told them, ' about the price you're going to ask fo you eggs, and stick to it. But I hope that the eldest will recieve as much for her 10 eggs as the second will for her 30 eggs and the third for her 50 eggs. In other words each of you should bring back the same amount of money and keep in mind, the total for 90 eggs should not be less than 90 bucks.'

Although Benediktov says that the daughters were smart enough to find a way out, but I guess I am not that smart.

so kindly help me in getting a solution for this.
