    Because the person having 5 loaves gave 7/3 loaf to other person as one having 3 loaves gave 1/3loaf to other person from total 8 loaves so that each gets 8/3 loaves.
    So they should divide money in ratio of 7:1.

    u can understand dis by having asupmtion that each loaves cost Rs3
    than first person investment
    is Rs.15 and second person investment is Rs.9 so total investment of Rs.24 ,,if we will equally distribute dis cost to three person den each has to pay Rs.8 each and invested Rs.15 so he should get rs.7 back and second person should get Rs.1
