A man left one-third of his property to his daughter, one-fourth to his son, and the remaining Rs. 20000 to his wife. How much money did the man leave?

let the man's property be x

the daughter's property = 1/3x

the son's property = 1/4x

x - (1/3x + 1/4x ) = 20,000

x - (4/12x + 3/12x ) = 20,000

x - 7/12x = 20,000

12/12x - 7/12x = 20,000

5x/12 = 20,000

5x = 20,000 x 12

5x = 24,000

x = 240000/5

x = 48000

so the man's property = 48000 rs
