Ratios & Proportion

 Back to Questions

A sum of money is to be distributed among $A$, $B$, $C$, $D$ in the proportion of 5:2:4:3. If $C$ gets Rs. 1000 more than $D$, what is $B$'s share?


Rs. 500


Rs. 1500


Rs. 2000



 Hide Ans

Option(C) is correct

Let the shares of $A$, $B$, $C$ and $D$ be Rs. $5x$, Rs. $2x$, Rs. $4x$ and Rs. $3x$ respectively.
Then, $4x−3x=1000$
$⇒ x=1000$.
$B$'s share =Rs.$2x$=Rs.$(2×1000)$= Rs. \(2000\)

At first, I thought the answer would be 'none of these' since only ratios are given.

But After seeing the answer I realized that 'Difference of money between two people' is fixed so the answer has to be some 'exact value'.

And so B's share comes out to be Rs. 2000 Cool
