# What Portion of The Assets is Now Available With Him?

If a man gives 1/4 of his assets to his son, 1/3 to his wife and 1/8 to his daughter, then what portion of the assets is now available with him?

- 11/24
- 7/24
- 5/24
- 1/8

**Answer: (2) 7/24**

**Explanation:-
**Let the total assets of a man be X.

If a man gives 1/4 of his assets to his son, 1/3 to his wife and 1/8 to his daughter,

Then, he gives total portion to his family members = X/ 4 + X/ 3 + X/ 8

= (6 X + 8 X + 3 X)/24

= 17 X/24

Then, the remaining portion of the assets = X – 17 X/24

= (24 X – 17 X)/24

= 7 X/24

7/24 portion of the assets is now available with him.

Hence, the answer is (2) 7/24.
