The inheritance

Dad originally decided to bequeath the money to his two sons so that they would share it 8: 7 (older and younger). Then he changed his mind and divided the same amount in the ratio 11: 9 (older and younger). This increased the value of the inheritance for the older son by 925 tolars.

How much did the father send to both sons together?

Correct answer:

x =  49500

Step-by-step explanation:

8/(8+7) x+825=11/(11+9) x  0.016667x=825  x=49500
