    Find Total Value of Estate

    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?
    Thank you,

    Insufficient information.

    We must know SOMETHING about the Daughter's inheritance. So far, all we know is that it was NOT $36,000.

    He hated his daughter: she got zilch!
    wife = 12,000 (25% of 48000)
    son = 36,000
    I'm just an imagination of your figment !
