Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
In that case all the estate will pass to the brother "of the whole blood"
If the deceased brother had also been a fill blood brother then the Estate would have gone half to the surviving brother and the other half equally between the children of the deceased sibling.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
