Question

Hari Babu left one third of his property to his son,one -fourth to his daughter and the remainder to his wife. If his wife share is $$Rs.18000$$,what was the worth of his total property?


Solution

Suppose the total worth of property 
= x
share of son = $$ \frac{1}{3}\times x = \frac{x}{3}$$
share of daughter = $$ \frac{1}{4}\times x = \frac{x}{4}$$
Remaining part for wife =$$ x-\frac{x}{3}-\frac{x}{4}$$
$$ = \frac{12x-4x-3x}{12}$$
$$  18000 = \frac{5x}{12}$$
$$ x = \frac{18000\times 12}{5}$$
$$ = 3600 \times 12 $$
$$ = 43200 $$ Answer
