Written Assignment 2. The Selfridge-Conway Method*
sSuppose that three friends, Dakota, Tara, and Charlotte, buy 3
chocolate and 3 vanilla organic cupcakes for a total of \$18.
Dakota does not have a preference for any of the cupcakes, Tara
does not like chocolate, and Charlotte likes chocolate twice as
much as vanilla.
1. Complete the following table with the values of a chocolate and a vanilla cupcake for each
of the three friends.
Dakota
Tara
Charlotte
Value of a chocolate cupcake
\$3
34
Value of a vanilla cupcake
\$3
\$2
2. Suppose that the three friends are using the Selfridge-Conway Method to divide the
cupcakes. Dakota is the Divider and starts by dividing the cupcakes into three parts:
. Part 1: 1 chocolate and 1 vanilla cupcake
. Part 2: 0.5 chocolate and 1.5 vanilla cupcake
. Part 3: 1.5 chocolate and 0.5 vanilla cupcake
Complete the following table with the values of each part for each of the three friends.
Dakota
Tara
Charlotte
Part 1
(1) 3+(2)3: 56
1 chocolate/1 vanilla
( 2)0+ ( 2) 6: 36
(1)4+ (1) 2: 56
Part 2
0.5 chocolate/1.5 vanilla
(0.5)3+(1.5)3:56
(0.5) 0+ ( 1.5)6= 59
(0.5)44 (1.5)2: 85
Part 3
1.5 chocolate/0.5 vanilla
(1.5) 34 60.5)3 56
1.530+60.5)6=53
(15)9 + (0.5)2= \$7

3. Describe how the Selfridge-Conway Method works if Tara is the Trimmer and Charlotte
is the Chooser. (Fill in the blanks.)
. Dakota Divides as above.
. Tara identifies part _2 as the largest followed by part 1
. These two parts are worth (circle one) the same / not the same to Tara.
. How does Tara proceed? Is there a trimming? Yes/no (circle one).
1.5 -15:1
1:6
If yes, what does the trimming (T) consist of? _Izz vanilla
what does the trimmed part (N) consist of? I vanilla and 1/2 chocolate
. Who choses next?
What part does she choose?
(Part 1, 2, 3, or N)
. Who choses next?
What part does she choose?
(Part 1, 2, 3, or N)
. Who choses next?
What part does she choose?
(Part 1, 2, 3, or N)
. If there is a trimming, explain what happens next.
The trimming T is divided by
into the following three portions (the order of these 3
portions is irrelevant):
Portion 1 consists of
Portion 2 consists of
Portion 3 consists of
Who choses first?
What portion of the trimming does she choose?_(1,2, or 3)
Who choses next?
What portion of the trimming does she choose?_(1,2, or 3)
Who choses last?
What portion of the trimming does she choose?_(1,2, or 3)
. At the end...
Dakota
gets
chocolate cupcakes and
vanilla cupcakes
Tara
gets
chocolate cupcakes and
vanilla cupcakes
Charlotte gets
chocolate cupcakes and
vanilla cupcakes
