Solution

A = {P(1+ r/100)}n , 33(1/3)% = 1/3 Let the Principal for younger son be x And the Principal for elder son be y Now, Interest to be calculated for  Younger son = (120-12) = 108 years Elder son = (120-16) = 104 years Since Amount will be equally distributed then, {x(1+ 1/3)}108= {y(1+1/3)}104  x {(4/3)}(108 ) = y{(4/3)}104     y/x = {(4/3)}(108-104 ) y/x = 256/81 Elder son’s share = 256/337  × 60660 = 46080
