I could have told you that last part. Duh.

This task asked you how you would divide money.

If someone offered you £50, you said you would demand £25.

On average, people offer 35 to 40% of the pot.

Sex differences are small in this task. An offer of more than 40 per cent of the pot (ie £20) is more typically female and an offer of less than 35 per cent of the pot (ie £17.50) is more typically male.
