12,400 is to be divided between Mary and her 5 children, but Mary is to inherit 1/4 of the total money. So the solution goes like this.

Get 1/4 of 12,400= 12,400 divided by 1/4 or simply 12,400/4 = 3,100

Subtract 3,100 from 12,400 to get the remaining part that will be further distributed to 5 children.
12,400- 3,100= 9,300

Divide 9,300 by 5 = 1860

Thus the answer is Mary will get a total of 3,100 php while each of her children will inherit 1,860 php.
