5 pirates namely A, B, C, D and E (really interesting names) found a chest containing 1000 diamonds...
A being the leader is given the task of distribution of the diamonds...A's proposal is voted by the other pirates...if majority of them are against his proposition he will be shot dead and the task of distribution falls upon B and so on...

The priority order of every pirate is as follows-
1. To live
2. To get as many diamonds as possible
3. To get as many of their colleagues dead

Your Task- How should A distribute the diamonds such that he ensures his survival and also manages to get as many diamonds as he can..

I hope i was clear..

Oh Note: If the votes turn out to be 50-50 the proposition is still taken as accepted i.e. the pirate wont be shot...

Have fun ^_^
