Question

40. (2) Suppose A gets ₹ ( x ). Then, ( B ) gets ( 125 % ) of ( x=frac{125}{100} times x=₹ frac{5 x}{4} )
If ( B ) gets ( ₹ 120 ), then ( C ) gets ( ₹ 100 ). If ( B ) gets ( ₹ frac{5 x}{4} ) then, ( C ) gets
[
begin{array}{l}
quad=₹left(frac{100}{120} times frac{5 x}{4}right)=₹ frac{25 x}{24}
therefore quad x+frac{5 x}{4}+frac{25 x}{24}=395
Rightarrow quad(24 x+30 x+25 x)=(395 times 24)
Rightarrow quad 79 x=(395 times 24)
end{array}
]
( Rightarrow quad x=left(frac{395 times 24}{79}right)=120 )
Hence, A gets ₹ 120

# 395 are divided among A, B and Cin such a manner that B gets 25% more than A and 20% more than c. The share of A is (1) 198 (3) 180 (2) (4) 120 195
