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?

    i think it is a typographical error.... unless we know in what ratio or percentage the uneven division was, how can we solve this....
