Sisters Take Each Other to Court

(Chinese Folktale)

A wealthy man died and gave his assets to his two daughters. Each daughter got an equal share. But since it was difficult to assign an exact value to the inheritances, each daughter suspected that the other had received the larger share. They went to court, each demanding that they receive the extra value of the other’s inheritance. The Judge, however, did not bother figuring out how much the assets were worth. His solution was much simpler. All he did was tell the two sisters to exchange their inheritances!
