**MathMate**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 12:59pmSon and daughter got half, in the ratio of 4 to three.

So

son+daughter = 1/2

son got 4/14

daughter got 3/14

Wife got twice as the daughter = 6/14

Sister got 1-(4/14+3/14+6/14) = 1/14

If 1/14 of the property was worth $15,000, the value of his estate is

$15,000/(1/14) =?

**Henry**, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 2:57pmDaughter's share = x-dollars.

Wife's share = 2x-dollars.

Son's share = 4x/3-dollars.

Sister's share = 15000 dollars.

The son and daughter received 1/2 of

the property. The other 1/2 went to the

wife and sister:

x + 4x/3 = V/2 = 2x + 15000,

x + 4x/3 = 2x + 15000,

Solve for x:

x = 45000 = Daughter's share,

2x = 2 * 45000 = 90000 = Wife's share,

4x/3 = 4*45000/3 = 60000 = son's share

V/2 = 2 * 45000 + 15000 = 105000,

V = 210000 = Value of property.
