Lone-Divider and Lone-Chooser Methods
Unit 3 – Fair Division
______________________ for three people
Step 1: (__________) The divider D divides the cake into three shares (s1, s2, s3).
*D will get one of the three shares, but does not know which share he/she will get. All three shares are equal in the eyes of D
Step 2: (___________) C1 and C2 declare which of the three pieces are fair shares to each of them secretly.
*A chooser’s bid must list every single piece that he/she considers to be a fair share
Step 3: (________________) Who gets which piece?
*Take a look at the bids, who consider’s which pieces to be fair?
*If three people are dividing S, what percentage is a fair share? _________________
How do we decide what is fair? Both Liz and Liam think _______ is the only fair piece.
Step 1: (_____________) D1 and D2 divide S into two fair shares. Use the Divider-Chooser method to do so.
Step 2: (_____________) Each divider divides his share into three sub shares(s1a, s1b, s1c) and (s2a, s2b, s2c).
Step 3: (_____________) The chooser C selects one of D1’s three sub shares and one of D2’s three sub shares. These two shares make up C’s final share.
I will now pass out pineapple/orange cakes to each group of 3. Each person will receive their preference, keep it a secret.
For scenario #1, player 3 will be the chooser.
For scenario #2, player 2 will be the chooser
