What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

Explanation

• A sum of Rs 750 is distributed among A, B, C and D.
• A gets as much as B and C together.
• B gets Rs. 125 more than C.
• D gets as much as C.

Let suppose C gets “y” then D should also get “y”, B will get “125 + y” and A will take “125 +y + y”.

So, we have a final expression;

125 + y + y + 125 + y + y + y = 750

Through this expression we can easily find out the value of “y” and A’s share.

A’s share = ?

Solution

Let suppose

C gets = y

D = y

B = 125 + y

A = 125 +y + y

Now, according to the condition;

125 + y + y + 125 + y + y + y = 750

250 + 5y = 750

5y = 500

y = 100

A’s share = 125 + y + y = 125 + 100 + 100 = Rs. 325 answer

Conclusion

A sum of Rs 750 is distributed among A, B, C and D in such a manner that A gets as much as B and C together, B gets Rs. 125 more than C and D gets as much as C. A’s share will be Rs. 325.
