  1. man's present share = 3x
    wife's pesent share = 2x
    total = 5x

    after doubling: sum = 10x
    but he still wants only 3x
    so his fraction = 3x/10x = 3/10
    so his wife's share = 7/10

    they should divide it in the ration of 3 : 7

  3. Man’s share=3x
    Woman’s share=2x
    Total=5x

    5x+5x=10x. The man wants 3x
    Fraction: 3x/10x = 3/10
    Woman’s fraction= 7/10
    They should divide the ratio of 3;6

  4. Man's share= 3x
    Woman's share= 2x
    If we double the sum= 5x2=10x
    woman's share would be= 10x-3x=7x

  7. It should be 3:7
    Because if we double the answer should be 6:4 but the man should still receives the same amount so
    3: 4 + 3 = 3:7
