Tom Bodger was an eccentric to the last and when he died he left precise instructions with his lawyer regarding the amount of money his only son should receive. The old man had devised a test for his son which would determine his inheritance. The lawyer presented the son with six coloured boxes : two blue, two green, and two red, and was told that each box contained a sum of money. Two of the boxes contained $10000 each, two contained $15000, and two contained $25000. He was allowed to choose any two boxes of the same colour, the total contents of which would constitute his entitlement. To help him decide, each box had a statement engraved on it. The blue boxes stated that : 'Both a blue box and a red box contain $10000 each'; the green boxes stated that 'Both a green box and a blue box contain $25000 each"; and the red boxes stated that : 'Both a red box and a green box contain $15000 each'. Only one of the three statements was true, and the corresponding two engraved boxes contained the greatest total of the three possible pairs. What was the total contents of each pair?
