A father distributed his total wealth to his two sons. The elder son received 3/5 of the amount. The younger son received $30,000. How much wealth did the father have?

(A) 15,000
(B) 45,000
(C) 60,000
(D) 75,000
(E) 89,000


younger son had 2/5 of wealth
let total wealth = x
so 2*x/5 = 30,000
solve for x = 75,000IMO D
