      Hi clever cats!
                                Please solve this prob.i tried a lot but cudn't get the answer.
                               An old man had certain number of gold coins.He distributed the coins among his five sons,five daughters and a driver in the following fashion.
         First he gave a gold coin to his driver and distributed one-fifth of the rest to his first son.Then he gave another gold coin to his driver and gave one-fifth of the rest to his second son.Again he offered one gold coin to his driver and gave one-fifth of the rest to his thrid son.The process continued in the same way till the fifth son got his share.The old man then distributed the rest of the gold coins equally among his five daughters.
                              This prob might seem to be damn easy but i'm sure this really mind-blowing.
      Waiting for ur earliest reply(with the answer ofcourse),
      happy solving.......
