A 22,500 B 30,000 C 40,000 D 90,000 E 120,000 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.

A 22,500 B 30,000 C 40,000 D 90,000 E 120,000 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.
