awright, same rancher died. he'd bought a square family burial plot, kept 1/4 but said in his will, the boys should each get the same size & same shape as each other. only this time he had 4 sons. how was it divided?

Each gets 1/4 of the remaining 3/4 which is also known as 3/16 of the entire plot. Each son would be buried with their head / feet to dad's side.

Sorry to spoil your fun so early, but the girls seem to be counting on me!
