And this is the story:
There was once an Indian man named Halef, who had three sons-Amir, Bitkan, and Chandresh. He also had a herd of 12 elephants. When Halef felt that his end was drawing near, he made his last will and testament, by which he bequeathed half of the herd to Amir, the oldest, quarter to Bukan, his second-born, and one sixth to Chandresh, the youngest.
That same night, Halef passed away, and, surprisingly, so did his favorite ele-phant so that the next morning there were only 11 elephants left in the herd.
The sons buried their father, and the court determined on what day to execute his last will.
The three young men realized that the will could not be executed if there were only 11 elephants left in the herd because 11 is not divisible by 2 or 4 or 6, meaning they would all end up with nothing.
So the three sons were desperate and did not know what to do, when along came an Indian magician-a fakir-and he said, "I am Ben Ali, and I am familiar not only with the art of magic, but with the art of mathematics as well. I am called The Man with the Multicolored Elephant. Trust meI am going to help you."
The will was to be read the next day. First of all, Ben Ali asked the court to appoint him as executor of the will.

Ben Ali's way out of the dilemma is revealed in our detailed instruction along with numerous suggestions how to convey a seemingly dry mathematical problem in a most entertaining way.

What you get:
3 cards showing the brothers' faces on one side and their backs of the heads on the other (6,6" x 9,6").
11 cards with Indian elephants and 1 card with a multicolored African elephant (6" x 8,4"), also printed on both sides.
A comprehensive instruction with many gags and jokes about India and its elephants to embellish your presentation.
