## Divide the WillMath brain teasers require computations to solve.An old woman died leaving an estate of $1,000,000. Her estate was divided up among her surviving relatives. Her relatives: Jennie, Bobbie, Ellie, Ginnie, Candie, Dannie, Frannie, Annie, Hollie and Kathie were each given an amount of money. The eccentric woman's will stated that each of her relatives was to be given an amount based on the alphabetic order of their first name. The heirs were listed in the order of their names and thus the order of their gift. Annie received the most and Kathie received the least amount. The difference in the amounts given to each person was to be constant. (i.e. The difference between the amount given to the first and second person on the list was the same as the difference in the amount given to the next-to-last and the last person on the list.)
