D 90,000
E 120,000


Inheritance each siblings got = 360000/3 = 120000

Inheritance each children got = 120000/3 = 40000.

C is the correct answer.

The part for each sibling is 1/3 of the total inheritance.

Then one of the three siblings (thus 1/3) is split again into four equal parts (her three children AND herself) thus \(\frac{1}{3} * \frac{1}{4} = \frac{1}{12}\)
\(\frac{1}{12}*360,000 = 30,000\). Hence the answer is B.

360000/3 = 12,0000
12,0000/4 = 3,0000
IMO B

Each sibling initially gets 360,000/3 = $120,000.

Since 1 sibling splits her $120,000 portion equally among her 3 children and herself, each receives $120,000/4 = $30,000.

Answer: B
