Mr. Pennypacker left half of his estate to his wife; $40,000 to his daughter; half of what remained to his butler; half of what remained for the care of his favorite dog; and the remaining $6,000 to charity. What was the value of Pennypacker's estate?

  • Math -

    6000
    6000 x 2 = 12,000
    12,000 x 12,000 = 24,000
    24,000 + 40,000 = 64,000
    64,000 x 2 = $128,000
