John, James, and Harry have $4.80 which they wish to divide equally among them. To do this, John, who has the most, gives to James and Harry as much as they already have. Then, James divides by giving John and Harry as much as they have after John’s division. Harry then divides with John and James in the same way, and it is found that they have equal sums.
How much had each at first?
