D

111000=(0+5000+13000)+93000

where, (0+5000+13000) - compensation for inequality
93000 - should be divided evenly be 3

So, 13000+93000/3=44000

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.
