Three coworkers would like to know their average salary. However, they are self-conscious and don't want to tell each other their own salaries, for fear of either being ridiculed or getting their houses robbed. How can they find their average salary, without disclosing their own salaries?
Nothing in the text appears to prohibit having a fourth person, like a polling clerk, collects the three figures and offers the average.
