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
