Ahh, sounds like a homework problem, which we will not answer directly,
if at all.

If you had no computer at all, how would you do this by hand?  Can you
describe the process that would identify how to split the piles of
candies, money, or whatever other representation you might use?  So
forgetting about Python and the specifics of making a valid program, how
would you solve this problem?  What steps would you take? This is known
as an algorithm.  Once you have that figured out, then you can begin to
express the algorithm as a computer program.
