## Explanation

A certain amount is distributed among A, B and C.

A gets 3/16

B gets 1/4 of the whole amount.

C gets Rs. 81

Total amount is not given here so we shall start considering the total amount “y”.

A will get “3y/16”, B “y/4” and C’s value is already given. So;

3y/16 + y/4 + 81 = y ______ (i)

By solving equation (i) we can easily figure out the value of B.

## To Find

Amount received by B = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Total amount = y

Amount received by A = 3y/16

Amount received by B = y/4

Amount received by C (given) = 81

3y/16 + y/4 + 81 = y

3y + 4y + 1296 = 16y

7y + 1296 = 16y

1296 = 16y – 7y

1296 = 9y

1296/9 = y

144 = y

B = y/4 = 144/4

B = **36 answer**

## Conclusion

A certain amount is distributed among A, B and C. A gets 3/16 and B gets 1/4 of the whole amount. If C gets Rs. 81, then B would get Rs. 36.
