lisa won the lottery
she used 1/2 of her lottery win to buy a house
she gave 1/6 of her lottery win to charity

lisa then shared the remainder of her lottery win equally amongst her 4 children

what is the fraction of lisa's lottery win that each of her 4 children received?

    What's left
    (1-1/2-1/6)
    =(6-3-1)÷6
    = 2÷6
    = 1/3
    Each child gets
    (1/3)÷4
    =1/12 of the original lottery winnings.
