An estate was divided among three heirs. After Andrea received 50% of the estate, her mother received 50% of what remained, leaving $20,000 for Andreas uncle. What was the total value of the estate?

  • Math -

    a=.50e m=.50(.50e)=.25e u=20,000

    e=20,000+.25e+.50e
    e-.25e-.5e=20000
    .25e=20000
    e=80000

    Total estate was 80,000
