can you figure this one out????i doubt it!!!!!! super tricky!!!!!?

A man left a legacy of $1,000,000 to three realatives and their wives. The wives recived together $396.00. Jane recived $10.00 more then Catherine, and Mary recived $10.00 more then Jane. John Smith was given just as much as his wife , Henry Snooks got half as much again as his wife, and Tom Crowe recived twice as much as his wife. What was the Christian name of each man's wife?

    This is impossible with the numbers you give but assuming you mean $1,000 and not $1,000,000 then their names are:

    Catherine Smith

    Jane Snooks

    Mary Crowe

    (Are you sure this doesn't belong in 'homework help'!!!)

    The only answer that I got that would make sense (if the numbers were skewed) were Catherine Smith, Jane Snooks, and Mary Crowe. Though the numbers don't exactly come to an even 1,000; 10,000; 100,000; or 1, 000,000 that was the closest that I could come to it. I'm guessing that there was a very heavy death/inherentence tax!
