Now for that share she got she still received it in same ratios, so she still pays 6k and 4k respectively, but now from the ramaining Bob has an equal share to Alice, which means he has effectively bought (1/2 - 2/5)*(10/3) = 1/3 loaf from Alice, costing 2k.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3722233.post-1164846288131945892006-11-29T19:24:00.000-05:002006-11-29T19:24:00.000-05:00IMHO If the trip can be considered a "joint ventur...IMHO If the trip can be considered a "joint venture", then Alice indeed contributed 60% of the "seed funding". and so should get 60% of the shares. Marilyn's answer is good only if Carol has interacted with each camper separately, which goes contradictory to the story.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
