B.Rs. 400

C.Rs, 300

D.Rs, 6Q0

**Answer**

A: B: C = 1:2:4.

C’s share Rs.[700*(4/7)) = 400.

Out of the remaining 95%,

A’s share is 0.95x*3/5 = 0.57x = 855 x=Rs.1500

**3. A began a business with Rs.85,000. He was joined afterwards by B with Rs.42,500. For how much period does B join, if the profits at the end of the year are divided in the ratio of 3 : 1?**

B.5 months

C.6 months

D.8 months

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option D

Suppose B joined for x months. Then,

Then, 85000 x (12/42500) x x =3/1

x = 85000 x (12/42500) x 3

x= 8.

So, B joined for 8 months.

B's capital = 4x (Since B's Capital is four times C's capital)

A's capital = 6x (Since twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital)

A: B: C =6 x : 4x : x

= 6 : 4 : 1

B's share = 16500 * (4/11) = 1500*4 = 6000

**15. A, B and C rent a pasture. A grazed his 35 cows for 20 days, B grazed his 20 cows for 30 days and C grazed his 30 cows for 15 days. If A paid Rs.1050 as rent, find the total rent paid by them.**
