Homework Help: Math - Algebra

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 8:51pm.

A father in his will left all his money to his children in the following manner:

$1000 to the first born and 1/10 of what then remains, then
$2000 to the second born and 1/10 of what remains, then
$3000 to the third born and 1/10 of what remains, and so on.

When this was done, each child had the same amount. How many children were there?

How would you solve this problem? This would be easy if it stated the total amount of money -_-
