You're a pirate captain and your crew is about to divvy up the gold you've plundered. They are waiting for your wisdom on the subject.
However, if less than half the pirate crew agree with your division of the gold, they will make you "walk the plank".
How would you divvy up the gold in a way that will keep you alive and with your pockets full of gold?
(The 'Google Riddles' are interview questions those who wish to get hired were asked).
Share the gold with only 51% of the pirates. The other 49% will want to kill you but who cares - they're the minority! This way you'll get the max amount of gold with the majority of pirates voting to keep you alive.
