Uncle Albert's estate is to be divided among his three nephews. The will specifies that Daniel receive one-half of the amount that Brain receives and that Raymond receive $1,000 less than one-third of the amount that Brain receives. If the estate amounts to $25,400 then how much does each inherit?

  • math -

    d = b/2
    r = b/3 - 1000

    d + b + r = 25400
    b/2 + b + b/3 - 1000 = 25400
    11b/6 = 26400
    b = 14400
    d = 7200
    r = 3800
