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?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let the shares of A, B, C and D be Rs. 5*x*, Rs. 2*x*, Rs. 4*x* and Rs. 3*x* respectively.

Then, 4*x* - 3*x* = 1000

*x* = 1000.

B's share = Rs. 2*x* = Rs. (2 x 1000) = Rs. 2000.

a=5000, b=2000, c=4000, d=3000 c value greater then d 1000.

So, B shear 2000.

So, B shear 2000.

@Deepa.

There are 4no.

A, B, C, D=5x, 2x, 4x, 3x (respectivly).

The Question says c get Rs 1000 more than D which means.

We have C as 4x. And D as 3x so.

4x=3x+1000. Ok (ques says).

Then 4x-3x=1000.

Therefore x=1000.

We have to find of B. Then B has 2x=>2*1000=2000 (x=1000).

So, the answer is 2000.

Why we subtract 4x-3x?

A:B:C:D.

5:2:4:3.

5x:2x:4x:3x.

C gets Rs.1000 more than D,

4x=3x+x.

3x+x=3x.

x is extra that is 1000 rs.

B's share is 2x.

That is 2*1000.

2000 B's share.

5:2:4:3.

5x:2x:4x:3x.

C gets Rs.1000 more than D,

4x=3x+x.

3x+x=3x.

x is extra that is 1000 rs.

B's share is 2x.

That is 2*1000.

2000 B's share.

A = 5x . B= 2x C =4x . D = 3x.

(A-B )- ( C-D)

(5x - 2x)-(4x -3x)

3x-1x,

2x,

C D =1000.

X= 2*1000 = 2000,

B = 2000.

(A-B )- ( C-D)

(5x - 2x)-(4x -3x)

3x-1x,

2x,

C D =1000.

X= 2*1000 = 2000,

B = 2000.
