A man’s will left $75,000 to his wife, son and daughter in such a way that his son’s share was 3 times the daughter’s share, while the wife received as much as the son and daughter together. How much did each receive?

    daughter's share --- x
    son's share ---- 3x
    wife's share --- 3x + x or 4x

    x + 3x + 4x = 75000

    easy to solve for x ....
