Hi All,

Scenario starts ......,
1.I have x (dollar) amount, I have been allowed to give constant value say 8(dollar) to each of kid to spend.
2. I have to find out to how many kid I can distribute this amount say (x/8)
For this I found out that If this division is not whole number then roundin up the value
3. Now I get the number of Kids can receive the amount portion say "numKids"
4. Now the another problem : How much can a kid get so I decided to distribute like this :
Total amount : x
Total Kids : numKids
So each kid wil get x/numKids)dollar only when this results in "Whole Number"
If "Division of amount" is not whole number then I have set the rule that The youngest kid get an additional 1 dollar. and all other remaining kids will get the equal part.

Scenario completes...
