# All get Equal Share

Algebra Level pending

An old and crafty mathematician had $$n$$ children, not all of the same sex, none of whom were of the same age. His will was short and sweet. It said :

"My property should be distributed among my children, starting from the eldest to youngest. The $$i$$-th child gets $$1000\times i+ 10\% \mbox{ of what that remains}$$."

However, in spite of the apparent inequality in distribution, everyone got an equal share. If all the children gave $$0.5 \%$$ of their inheritance as tax. What was the total amount of tax collected from the $$n$$ children?
