Question 6 Percentage Exercise 11.6

A lawyer willed his 3 sons Rs 250000 to be divided into portions 30%, 45% and 25%. How much did each of them inherit?

Given total amount with the lawyer = Rs. 250000

First son's inheritance = 30% of 250000

= (30/100) × 250000

= 7500000/100

= Rs. 75000

Second son's inheritance = 45% of 250000

= (45/1000) × 250000

= 11250000/100

= Rs. 112500

Third son's inheritance = 25% of 250000

= (25/100) × 250000

= 6250000/100

= Rs. 62500
