MCQ

A, B, C subscribe ₹50000 for a business. A subscribes 4000 more than B and B 5000 more than C. Out of a total profit of 35000, A receives

• ₹8400

• ₹11900

• ₹13600

• ₹14700

#### Solution

₹14700
Explanation:
Let C = x
Then, B = x + 5000
and A = x + 5000 + 4000
= x + 9000
So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000
⇒ 3x = 36000
⇒ x = 12000
A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000
= 21 : 17 : 12
∴ A's share = ₹(35000xx21/50)=₹14700
