Ten mathematicians sit at a round table. Each has a certain amount of food. At each full

minute, every mathematician divides his share of food into two equal parts and hands

it out to the two people seated closest to him in counter-clockwise direction. How will

the food be distributed at the end of a long evening? Does the answer change if instead

every mathematician shares his food with the two people sitting immediately next to

him?
