Answer –**2.35:14:50**

**Explanation :**

Take time as t1, t2 and t3

(6*t1/5*t2) = 3/1, u will get t1/t2 = 5:2

Similarly, (5*t2/7*t3) = 1/5, u will get t2/t3 = 7/25

**Explanation :**

after one year – 4x+4300 : 5x-3200 : 8x

so, to find X – (4x+4300)/(5x-3200) = 5/4

so investment made by A = (33200/9)*4 = 14755.55

2.650

3.750

4.850

5.None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**2.650**

**Explanation :**

Let B invest ‘x’ rupees so A will invest (x+250)

Total investment made by A = (x+250)*4 and by B = 6x

According to the problem- [[4(x+250) – 6x]/(1000+ 10x)]*1000 = 200.

X = 200. Total investment = 200+250+200 = 650
