Abstract

Wills and inheritances have traditionally been a cause of much discord in families. Which is why, when Mr. Jagirdar drew up his will, he invited his friend, the mathematician Mr. Z to meet him at a popular coffee shop and sought his help! You see, the problem was that he wanted to bequeath his triangular plot of land (shown in Fig. 1), bordered on three sides by roads, to his sons, and he wanted to divide the property so that both sons received equal land area and equal access to the road.
