Q: What is the share of daughter if a Muslim dies leaving behind a daughter and a real brother?

A: The share of one daughter is normally 50% (half of the entire estate) So if a parent dies leaving behind one daughter and a brother, and NO OTHER HEIRS, then the daughter will get half the estate while the brother will receive the other half.
