This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

A father told his adult daughter that if she gave up smoking for the next 12 months, at the end of that time he would give her $10,000. She agreed to stop smoking, but later that day had doubts about whether her father would actually pay up if she complied. She contacted her stepmother, who told her to go ahead and quit smoking, and she would make good on the father's promise to pay her if he refused to do so. That very day, the daughter quit smoking and never smoked again. Eleven months after his conversation with his daughter, the father died. One month later, the daughter sought payment of the $10,000 from her father's estate, which refused to pay. The daughter then asked her stepmother for the $10,000, but the step mother also refused to pay. The daughter filed a claim against her stepmother for $10,000. Daughter is certain that someone owes her money. Who do you think & why? Use the following post assignments to help you work through your answer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
