dividing the total by 7 gives you the answer (3 daughters at 1 share each, 2 sons at 2 shares each, 3 + 4 = 7)

Assume daughters get Rs.X Sons will get Rs.2X So the Calc will be 3.X + 2.(2X)=1071 7X =1071 X =153 So each daughter receives Rs.153/- and each son Rs.306/-

Each daughter should get 153 153*3= 459 Each son gets 2*153= 306 so for 2 sons= 612 So totally 1071
