Hi,
 
I tried for several days to solve a puzzle that I found in an android application, without success.
 
This is the riddle number 44 of the android application : "66 Riddles" of which the following statement:


Five bankers are sharing 12 golden ingots.
They decide to proceed that way : The elder one will suggest an ingots allotment.
The rest will vote for or against it.

If the majority accepts, the sharing is ratified.
If not, the elder will be dismissed.
So, the sharing would be done between the remaining banker with the same rules. Knowing that they are set from left to right in a diminishing order of their ages, how would be the allotment ?


It remains for me than this to unlock the riddle 66 in the app, can anyone help me please?

@lemal15,
4 people receive 3 ingots each after 2 vote yes and 1 votes no.

Illogical possibilities include 2 people sharing 12 between them.

Banker A is the oldest and richest banker because he gets 6
Banker B gets 0
Banker C gets 2
Banker D gets 1
Banker E gets 3
