    10% is correct, Geoff!

    Let’s say that Jane inherited 8 million dollars. That would mean that Tim(who received 25% more) would have gotten 10 million. If he gives 10% of his amount, they would both end up with nine million. It works no matter what numbers you start with.

    You’re today’s winner.
