    thank you. would you know how to draw that out in pictures. I have to use a picture. thank you

    I got it backwards. Sorry.


    The most practical way of doing this is to give each person 1/2 sheet of paper. You'll have 1/2 piece left over in case someone messes up.

    Draw 5 sheets of paper and divide each into two equal pieces.
