Three friends namely George, Michael and Robert are friends.
George is a widower and lives alone with his only daughter who takes care of him.
Michael is a bachelor and his niece cooks for him and looks after his house.
Robert is married to a charming lady called Christina and they live together in a large apartment in the same town.
Christina suggests that all of them could stay together in a single house and share monthly expenses equally. During their first month of living together, each person contributed $1025. At the end of the month, it was found that $4068 was the total expense so the remaining amount was distributed equally among everyone. The distribution was such that everyone received $8 each.
How do you explain the situation?

Christina is George's daughter, Michael's niece & Robert's wife.
They live together and so each contributed $1025 towards $4068.
So 32$ are left which is distributed back and each got 8$
