Exercise 1, page 36 Five Loaves of Bread
Mr Brown went to the market every day. He always bought five loaves of bread there.
One day Mr Brown met his friend, Mr Smith.
Mr Smith said, “I meet you almost every day and I always see you with five loaves of bread. Why do you always buy five loaves, no more and no less?”
“I lend two and with the other two I pay my debts1,” answered Mr Brown.
“I don’t understand you,” said Mr Smith.
“Oh, well, my wife and I eat one loaf, I give two to my children, and two loaves to my father and mother,” said Mr Brown.
