1. ## Total Value

In his will, Mr. Adams left 25% of his estate to
his wife and unevenly divided the balance between his son and his daughter. If the son received $36,000 as his share, what was the total value of the estate? 2.

75% of his estate is unevenly divided between the son and daughter-

We know the son receives \$36,000, but that does not tell us how much the total was or what percentage of the total that amount is.

There has to be more information. Are you sure that's the whole question?

One of the choices is "NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION GIVEN."

Thanks!

Thanks!
If you have a multiple choice question why do you not post the choices?

Part of the technique for handling these is to be able to eliminate the
implausible/imposible solutions so that you are left with a shorter list
of possible candidates, or just one possible answer.

Some of my questions have multiple choice and others do not.

If questions have multiple choices, I will post them with their choices.

However, a lot of my questions do not have choices.
