Wagons and Oxen

WagonTrn

The leaders of the 12 tribes each donated one oxen and 1/2 of a wagon to The Miskan. These were split between the families of the Levites.   Gershon got 1/3 of the donation. Merari got 2/3 of the donation, and Kehos got none of it. (Bamidbar 7: 3-9) How many oxen and wagons did each family of the Levites get?

 

12 x 1 = 12 oxen

12 x 1/2 = 6 wagons

 

Gershon got 1/3 = 4 oxen and 2 wagons

Merari got 2/3 = 8 oxen and 4 wagons

and Kehos got none = 0 oxen and 0 wagons.
