Animal Customs

Author(s): 

A fox, a raccoon, and a hound pass through customs and together pay 111 coins.  The hound says to the raccoon, and the raccoon says to the fox, "Since your fur is worth twice as much as mine, then the tax you pay should be twice as much!"  How much should each pay?

China, 200 BCE
