1. A, B, C subscribe Rs. 50,000 for a business. A subscribes Rs. 4000 more than B and B Rs. 5000 more than C. Out of a total profit of Rs. 35,000, A receives:

2.  A. Rs. 8400 B. Rs. 11,900 C. Rs. 13,600 D. Rs. 14,700

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 = Rs[35000x$$\frac { 21 } {50 }$$]= Rs. 14,700.
