A beehive has 100 bees. The worker bees produce a total of 100 ounces of honey a year. The workers can not run the hive. The queen bee runs the hive, but can not produce honey. Each bee requires 1/2 ounce of honey a year to survive, so the hive has a surplus of 50 ounces in a year. How should they divide the surplus?
Should the queen receive more honey because she has an ability the others do not, should each bee receive an equal share, or? What is fair in your opinion?
