its depends on the file length,
AFAIK, each 100 lines make new file
since you get 3 , you have 201 to 300 lines

split -l 150 filename, will give you 2 files

to have it all time 2 files, it's lightly complicated (use 'wc -l filename' and devide it by 2)
i.e, file with 15000 lines, split -l 150 filename , will give 100 files
