Which of the Options Below States the Correct Amounts Paid by Riz and Rekha to Buy Their Tv, Ac and Washing Machine Respectively? - Mathematics



Direction :  Answer the question on the basis of the information given below.

After their wedding, Riz and Rekha decide to move into a new apartment, which is unfurnished. So they decide to buy the necessary home appliances with the gift money that they received at their wedding. The total gift money received was Rs.1,23,000 out of which the amount spent on wooden furniture is Rs.24,000, which is double the amount spent on carpeting the drawing room floor. The remaining amount was spent on buying exactly three items namely TV, AC and Washing Machine, the prices of which are in the ratio 11 : 13: 5 respectively.

Which of the options below states the correct amounts paid by Riz and Rekha to buy their TV, AC and Washing Machine respectively?


  • Rs.33,000, Rs.30,000, Rs.27,000

  • Rs.39,000, Rs.30,000, Rs.9,000

  • Rs.33,000, Rs.39,000, Rs.15,000

  • Rs.11,000, Rs.13,000, Rs.5,000


Rs.33,000, Rs.39,000, Rs.15,000


The correct answer is  - Rs.33,000, Rs. 39,000, Rs.15,000, which adds up to a total of Rs. 87,000. The amount spent on furniture and carpeting when subtracted from the total gift money will give

[123000 – (24000 + 12000)] = Rs.87,000.

Also Rs.33,000, Rs.39,000 and Rs.15,000 are in the ratio 11: 13: 5, whereas none of the other options add up to the same total, nor do they bear the same ratio.
