golden chain

A man has a gold chain with 7 links. he needs the service of a laborer for 7 days at a fee of one gold link per day. however, each day of work needs to be paid for separately. in other words, the worker must be paid each day after working and if the laborer is ever overpaid he will quit with the extra money. also he will never allow himself to be owed a link.

what is the fewest no of cuts to the chain to facilitate this arrangement and how does that guarantee payment?


  1. minimum no of cuts = 2;
    with link of 1,2,4.

  2. Sir ,
    question samjhe nhi aa raha hai ???

  3. see you are given a gold chain with 7 links,means chain can be cut from any of these you have to give 1 gold link per how you will cut the golden chain.
    so cut it in the form of 1,2,4 links.
    focus is you can form every number between 1 to 7 using these 3 combinations..try and then comment..
