A dying person wrote in his will,
If his pregnant wife will have a son,
The son shall receive 2/3 of his assets
and his wife shall receive 1/3 of his assets.
If she will have a daughter, then, the
wife shall receive 2/3 of his assets,
and the daughter shall receive 1/3 of his assets.

mother gets 2 parts and the daughter
gets 1 part.
