(Money Puzzles)
"A client of mine," said a lawyer, "was on the point of death when his
wife was about to present him with a child. I drew up his will, in which
he settled two-thirds of his estate upon his son (if it should happen to
be a boy) and one-third on the mother. But if the child should be a
girl, then two-thirds of the estate should go to the mother and
one-third to the daughter. As a matter of fact, after his death twins
were born--a boy and a girl. A very nice point then arose. How was the
estate to be equitably divided among the three in the closest possible
accordance with the spirit of the dead man's will?"
