well you've been given a fraction of what each person gets. the daughter gets half, the stepson get's 3/8 ... and the remaining goes to the grandson. what is half of 150,000? what is 3/8 of 150,000? do you know how to find those 2 amounts?

I think I told you not to solve it angeldark... you're not even sure if your answer is right... i'm trying to get her involved in solving it so she understands it.

@LynnMichael if the daughter got half of the amount, it means that she got \(\large \frac{1}{2} \times 150000 = 75000 \) use the same idea to find how much the stepson got
