A Father is willing his estates like this. If a boy is born, wife has 1/3 part and remaining for boy. If a girl is born, Wife has 2/3 and remaining for the girl. But twins (Boy + Girl) are born. What is the share that the daughter would get?

Anurag Kumar   You are not going to like this very much. It is very gender biased against the daughter. It is a very famous problem created by a Persian mathematician who did a lot about estate resolution. It also has something to do with the way the Koran dictates the way estates are to be made up.

None of the answers are correct in two places. It is incredible how this is resolved.

The son gets twice as much as the wife.
The wife gets twice as much as the daughter.

Let the daughter's share = x
Let the wife's share = 2x
Let the son's share = 4x

7x = 1 estate
The daughter gets 1/7 of the estate.
The wife get's 2/7 of the estate
The son gets 4/7 of the estate.
