After 5 minutes, flip, 2 steaks and get the other 2 fillets. Put in place which were removed from the pan after broiling on the one hand, and freirlos for another 5 minutes.

3. It is necessary to cut the ingot into 3 parts: 1/7, 2/7 and 4/7. For this, you just will require two cuts. After that you should pay the worker in accordance with the following scheme:

Monday: give 1/7 of the ingot.

Tuesday: give 2/7 of ingot and take away 1/7 of the ingot.

Wednesday: again to give 1/7 of the ingot.

Thursday: Give 4/7 of the ingot and removing 1/7 and 2/7 of the ingot.

Saturday: give 2/7 of the ingot and remove 1/7 of the ingot.

Sunday: give the worker 1/7 of the ingot remaining
