There are two different gemstones in the realm. Haxite, which is a deep red gem, and aquadium, a jewel of many beautiful blues and some green, which is worth 3x more than haxite.
This week the miners have been mining special ore carts for the three princes of the realm, and the princes are equal, thus they must all receive exactly the same worth in their ore cart. The Chief-Miner oversaw the operation, rubbing his haxite necklace for good luck. At the end of the last day, the miners got 14 aquadium crystals and 26 haxite chunks.
"How should we distribute them?" the Sub-Chief-Miner asked.
"That's easy!" laughed the Chief-Miner. "Split both gems' numbers in three and fill up the ore carts! And quickly, the princes come at dawn tomorrow!"
"But neither gem amount is divisible by three..." the Sub-Chief-Miner complained, but the Chief-Miner would hear none of it. He also ordered that ALL the gems that were mined MUST be used.
The Sub-Chief-Miner sighed and returned to the men- but then he got an idea. The next dawn the princes came to see each ore cart had the same wealth.
How did they split up equal worth into all three ore carts?
Try before you look at my spoiler, it's not that hard
