Partnership Goodwill sharing

I have this question on partnership goodwill but its telling me my answer is wrong could anyone help.

Partners a & b share profits and losses 3:1 respectively goodwill is valued at £80,000 what is partner a's share of goodwill?

So I divided the £80,000 goodwill by 4 giving me £20,000 then times it by 3 (partner a's profit share) giving me £60,000. When I put this as the answer it say I'm wrong.

Any help on what I'm doing wrong would be great :)

    First goodwill is not a part of profit share, itso capital. 2nd-if you could post the full question I can help further. Cheers

    Thank you for the reply. It was the correct answer after all it turn out that I need to put the decimal point in. So 60000.00 and not £60,000 Aren't computer tests great :/ It was an online knowledge test.
