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
