Four friends are gathered at a pub. They have in front of them two 8-pint trankards full of beer, and an empty 3-pint mug.
Since they are still sober, they quickly calculate that they have 16 pints for the four of them, which comes out to an even 4 pints per person.
Can they divide the beer equally with the containers they have available?

you make it seem so easy, but how are you to figure out exactly where the half point is?
