Money Distribution among Sons


A man had five children. He had $100 with him to give to his children. He decided to start with the youngest child and then give $2 more than each younger child to his next elder child.

For example, if he gives $x to the youngest child, he will give $(x+2) to the next one, $[(x+2) + 2] to the next one and so on.

Can you find out how much did the youngest one receive?

    The sons (youngest to eldest) got $16, $18, $20, $22 and $24   (16 + 18 + 20 + 22 + 24 = 100)
