Question

# Babu left one-third of his property to his son, one-fourth to his daughter and the remainder to his wife. If his wife's share is Rs 1,80,000, what was the value of his property?

Hint:

### let the Babus property be x ; find the Babu's son and daughters property

Now find the remaining share of property which belongs to his wife and equate it with Rs 1,80,000to get the total value of the property..

## The correct answer is: Rs 4,32,000

### Ans :- Rs 4,32,000

Explanation :-

Step 1:- calculate the share of son and daughter

Let the total value of Babu’s property be x

Now, share of son = ⅓ of x = x/3

share of Daughter = ¼ of x = x/4

Step 2:- Find share of wife

Remaining value of property = Total - son’s share - daughter’s share

= x - (x/3) -(x/4)

= (2x/3) - (x/4)

= 5x/12

The share of Babu’s wife is 5x/12

Step 3:- equate the share of babu’s wife with Rs 1,80,000 to find total value of babu’s property

∴The total value of babu’s property = Rs 4,32,000

For the solution of the system of equations above, what is the value of ?

**Note:**

The equations can be solved in many other ways like substitution

method which is: to eliminate one variable in any one of the

equations with the help of other equation. As we need to find the

value of x, we try to find the value of y in terms of x from one

equation. Then put that value of y in the other equation to get a linear equation in one variable , which is x.
