# A & B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2

A & B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A’s share is Rs. 855, the total profit is :

(a) Rs. 1425

(b) Rs. 1500

(c) Rs. 1537.50

(d) Rs. 1576

**Answer: (b) Rs. 1500**

**Solution:-**

Let the total profits be Rs. 100.

If 5% of the total profit goes to charity,

Then, A’s share = 95 x 3/5

= Rs. 57

If A’s share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100

If A’s share Rs. 855,

Then, Total profit = 100 x 855/57

= 1500

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 1500
