    yes that would be the equation but in order to add the you need all denominaters the same because it makes it much easier soooo..... all of them can be changed to 81 1/9 times by 9 is 9/81 and then 5/81 doesn't need to be changed and then 17/27 times by three is 51/81 so it would be \[\frac{ 9 }{ 81 } + \frac{ 5 }{ 81 } + \frac{ 51 }{ 81 } =\]

    yes and then you would subtract that from 81/81

    because 81/81 is the whole and then your subtracts everyone else s inheritance from that to find out the fourth persons.
