I don't see what the problem with fractions in this question is. The riddle says 100 measures of corn, not 100 ears of corn or 100 kernels of corn. A measure is an arbitrary unit until the unit is defined. For all we know the 'measure' could be 'a dozen ears' which, when used in the fractions would yield whole ears of corn. Or it could be volume equivalents, etc...

if you give workers the same amount it works out completly the same way as the others without the unlogical fractoins! 0x1=0x2=0x3=0x4=0x5=0x6=0x7
