**Problem:**

Number Concepts-Integers (**InterMath**)
**An estate valued at $62,000 is left by will as follows:**
**To each of two grandchildren a certain sum, to the
son twice as much as to the two grandchildren together, and to
the widow $2,000 more than to the son and grandchildren together.**
**How much goes to each?**

**Solution:**
x= amount of money left to each of the 2 Grandchildren

2x= amount of money left to the Son

3x + 2,000 = amount of money left to the Widow
x + 2x+ 3x + 2000 = 62,000

6x + 2,000= 62,000

6x = 60,000

x = 10,000
**How much money goes to each?**

1st Grandchild = $ 5,000

2nd Grandchild = $5,000

Son = $ 20,000

Widow = $ 32,000
