An old man left his fortune and goods to his four children. In the will it stated that each item should be divided up fairly so that each person should have an equal share. Unfortunately, the lawyer found that each person appraised the objects' worth differently and no official appraiser was nearby. The lawyer had each of the children complete a simple little informal appraisal of each of the major items. The results are as follows:

Albert:

Piano= 1,000

Ring= $120

Home= 2,000,000

Appliances= $500

Wardrobe= $50

Eric:

Piano= 1,500

Ring= $20

Home= 2,600,000

Appliances= $200

Wardrobe= $10

Theresa:

Piano= 900

Ring= $75

Home= 1,500,000

Appliances= $350

Wardrobe= $10

Sonya:

Piano= 1,150

Ring= $150

Home= 4,000,000

Appliances= $750

Wardrobe= $0

The deceased also had a net value of $12,000,000. How should the lawyer divide up the assets using only this given information to where each person walks away with an equal (or better than equal) percentage of the deceased's worth?
