The oldest son gets 1/2 of the cars, the middle son gets 1/4 of the cars and the youngest son gets 1/5 of the cars. One of the conditions is that the cars are not be cut up , and must remain in one piece. The sons are confused. How do they solve this issue?

I loves this riddle and I tihnk this is the wrong answer but Im gonna says it anyways and is it the oldest boy gets all the cars 1/2 the time and the middle son gets them 1/4 the time and they divides them by the time and not the actual cars? [wonders]

Sell 4 of the cars. Divide the money between the sons. Then there is 15 cars. Divide the 15 by 3 and each son gets 5 cars.

Some one loans the boys a car making 20 cars total The oldest takes 1/2 of the cars = 10 Cars The middle takes 1/4 of the cars = 5 Cars And the youngest takes 1/5 of the cars = 4 cars They then return the loaned car
