by switching camels and racing as fast as they could made the others camel tired and slow. so by having the slowest camel in the beginning meant you would win in the end because your new camel would get slow not as quickly and you would end up at the city faster. make sense?

The man might have been wise enough to tell the brothers to switch camels and get it over with faster but a smart son would have kept his own camel, rode to within walking distance of the city alone then shot or hamstrung the camel for good measure, making it the slower of the two. He would then walk the rest of the way to the city and perhaps get word to his brother that he'd reached the city but nothing more. The brother could then ride to the city thinking he had the slower camel only to find out that even though he got there last his camel got there before the other camel. The first brother would thus both reach the city first and have the slower of the two camels.

Because they swapped camels so one brother races on the others camel and vice versa, so if one wins on the others camel his camel loses and he gets the money!
<!-- s8) --><!-- s8) --> But the riddle said that whoever had the slowest camel would inherit the Sheikh's money. Why would the two brothers be racing as fast as they can? Don't they want the fortune?

This is simple.
The aim of the race is for one of the boys and his camel to race to the city and return but the owner of the slowest camel would be declared winner.
By switching camels it meant the new intention was to make the others camel travel fast, therefore making your own camel, which the other rides, the slower of the two. as one would win.
Very very good.........
