After his death when the relatives read his will they got extremely perplexed and said to each other that how can we divide 17 camels like this.

So after a long hard thought they decided that there was only one man in Arabia who could help them: Ali Ibne Abi Taalib.

So they all came to the door of Ali and put forward their problem.Ali said, "Ok. I will divide the camels as per the man's will. I will lend one of my camels to the total which makes it 18 (17+1), now lets divide as per his will"

The Eldest gets 1/2 of 18 == 9

The second one gets 1/3 of 18 == 6

and The Youngest gets 1/9 of 18 == 2

Now the total number of camels == 17

Then Ali said, "Now I will take my Camel back"

**hahaha... what a brilliant guy**
