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.
Amount received by B = ?
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
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.
