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 “g”. Now; according to the question Sohail should receive “g/5” and Rashid should receive “2g/5”.

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

g = 625 answer

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.
