A Man who died left an estate worth $111,000. His Will stipulated that his estate was to be distributed so that each of his three children received from the estate and his previous gifts, combined, the same total amount. If he had previously given his oldest child $15,000, his middle child $10,000 and his youngest child $2,000, how much did the youngest child receive from the estate?
A. $ 50,000
B. $ 48,000
C. $ 46,000
D. $ 44,000
E. $ 39,000
Time yourself on this one!
1min 39sec. I didn't understand what it was asking at first.
111,000+15,000+10,000+2,000=138,000. --> 138,000/3 =46,000 (even amount among the 3 children)
Youngest recieved 2,000. So from the estate he/she will recieve 44,000.
