How should I think about the following scenario?
There is an estate of $100,000 plus an automobile valued at $5000. There are two beneficiaries, A and B, each to receive 50% of the estate assets. Beneficiary A also wants the automobile and will 'pay' for it from their share of the estate.
A quick answer would be 'A gets $45,000 and B gets $55,000'... But I think that would be incorrect. A is not paying B $5,000, they are paying the estate, which is split.
A slightly more thought out answer would be 'A gets $47,500 and B gets $52,500", effectively cutting in half the amount A is paying for the car.
Are there any other, more correct answers?
