Two Friends, Sohan and Costubh,
are about to have lunch in a small village.
When a stranger approaches them,
The stranger tells them that he has no food,
But would be happy to pay them if they can share some of theirs.
The two agree.
Sohan has 5 loaves of bread and Costubh has 3.
They divide the bread equally among the three of them.
After they finish the meal,
the stranger puts 8 coins of equal value on the table in payment.
How should the coins be divided,
so that each friend is fairly compensated for the bread that he shared ?

In front of you are 3 chests:
Chest A has been labelled with "100 gold coins",
Chest B has been labelled with "50 gold and 50 silver coins",
Chest C has been labelled with "100 silver coins".

You are told that all of the labels are incorrectly placed, as they describe the contents of another chest. To help you determine which is the chest which contains "100 gold coins", you are allowed to randomly pick a coin from any chest,

Which chest should you pick a coin from?

You have a thousand Re. 1 coins with you. You have ten bags with you and you can put any number of coins in each of the bags. The condition is that if someone asks you for any amount between 1 and 1000, you must be able to give that amount by just giving the bag (you are not allowed to open the bag and give coins).

How will you do it?
