There are several ways of approaching this.

The monies are split into 8 parts for the son and 9 parts for the daughter. This makes a whole of:

To find the total amount inherited, we first need to determine the amount inherited by the son. Since the daughter received 9 parts of the total ratio and inherited $3060, we can calculate the value of one part of the ratio by dividing$3060 by 9. This gives us $340 per part. Then, to find the total amount inherited, we multiply the value of one part by the total parts in the ratio (8 for the son and 9 for the daughter) and add it to the daughter's inheritance. So, the total amount inherited is (8 *$340) + $3060 =$2720 + $3060 =$5780. Therefore, the total amount inherited is $5780.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
