## Explanation

• A bonus of Rs. 1000 is to be divided among three people.
• Rashid receives twice as much as Sohail.
• Sohail receives one fifth as much as Ghani.

Let suppose Ghani receives â€śgâ€ť. Now; according to the question Sohail should receive â€śg/5â€ť and Rashid should receive â€ś2g/5â€ť.

g + g/5 + 2g/5 = 1000

By solving this equation we can easily determine the money received by Ghani.

## To Find

Money received by Ghani = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Money received by Ghani = g

Money received by Sohail = g/5

Money received by Rashid = 2g/5

According to the given condition;

g + g/5 + 2g/5 = 1000

(5g + g + 2g)/5 = 1000

8g/5 = 1000

8g = 1000 x 5

8g = 5000

## Conclusion

A bonus of Rs. 1000 is divided among three people so that Rashid receives twice as much as Sohail, who receives one fifth as much as Ghani. Ghani receives Rs. 625.
