A man left a legacy of $10,000 to three relatives and their wives.

Together, the wives received $3960. June received $100 more than
Camille, and Martha received $100 more than June.

Jack Smith was
given just as much as his wife, Horace Saunders got half as much
again as his wife,

& Terry Conners received twice as much as his wife.

Which wife belongs to which husband?

Ans : As it is evident that Camille, June and Martha received respectively $1220, $1320 and $1420, making together the $3960 left to the three wives, if Jack Smith receives as much as his wife Camille, $1220; Horace Saunders half as much again as his wife June, $1980; and Terry Connors twice as much as his wife Martha, $2840, then we have correctly paired the married couples and accounted for exactly $10,000.
