A solution would be nice, but I'd also be interested in knowing the origin and/or common name (phrasing) of this puzzle.Three travelers come across a bag of coins. If the first traveler takes the coins, he will have twice as much money as the other two.

If the second traveler takes the coins, he will have three times as much money as the other two.

If the third traveler takes the coins, he will have five times as much money as the other two.

Thanks.
