(12000*3+9000*9):(10000*3+14000*9):(15000*6)

117000:156000:90000

117:156:90 => 39:52:30

B = 52*25000/121 = 10744

C = 30*25000/121 = 6198

Diff = 10744 â€“ 6198 = 4546**P and Q invested in a business. They earned some profit which they divided in the ratio of 2:3. If P invested Rs.30000, the amount invested by Q is**

Explanation :

P = 8000:4000 = 2:1

20000*6 : x*12 = 2:1

20000:2x = 2:1

20000/2x =2/1

2X = 20000*1/2 =>x = Â 5,000**Rs.1200 is divided among A,B,C so that A receives half so much as B and B half as much as C. Then Bâ€™s share is**
