pratik left one-third of his property for his son, one-fourth for his daughter andthe remainder for his wife if wife's share in the property was worth 10lakh find the total worthof Pratik's property

All right we're told that a a man left a third of his property whatever to his son a quarter to the daughter. And the rest of it went to his wife which was worth 10 lakh. Uh And I had to actually look that up. I wasn't sure about that conversion. I don't know um If that's something that you're familiar with but the lock is 100,000. Alright. So what we have to do is figure out what portion of of the Of the estate went to the wife. Well the son got 1/3 of it and the daughter got one quarter of it. So the rest of it must be equal must must be the wife's. Alright. So let's see how much of it did they actually get? Well we have to add these two together of course to add them. We need our common denominator which is gonna be 12. So the first one is four out of 12. The second one is going to be three out of 12. Right? That would reduce to 1/4 and this would be one third. So when I add them together we have 7/12 of the property. So what's left for? The wife is going to be the rest which is 5 12. Okay So the wife Got 5/12 of the estate. You know that whatever was left over when this gentleman passed away and left it to them. Alright. So what we have to do here is answer the question which is what was his total estate worth? Well now we know that 5 12. So 5 12 of the total value I'll just use T. For that was equal to 10 block. So all we have to do is multiply by the reciprocal to solve this for the total value of his estate. I'm gonna multiply by 12/5. So on this side of course they cancel out and I'm left with just T. So I just have to multiply this side also by that same 12 divided by five. Alright. This time it doesn't cancel out but five goes into five once and into 10 twice. Two times 12 is 24. So 24 block. If you're allowed to stick with that unit then that's absolutely fine. Otherwise um just multiply it by that. 100,000. Uh and you know 2.4 million is what you should end up with there.

In mathematics, the absolute value or modulus |x| of a real number x is its numerical value without regard to its sign. The absolute value of a number may be thought of as its distance from zero along a number line; this interpretation is analogous to the distance function assigned to a real number in the real number system. For example, the absolute value of ?4 is 4, and the absolute value of 4 is 4, both without regard to sign.
