How much Amount Collected from First Class passengers? If
The first, second and third class railway fares between two stations are as 6:4:1 and the number of passengers of 3 classes are 2:5:50. If the total amount collect is Rs.12300, find the amount collected from first class passengers.
Answer: (c) Rs.1800
The ratio of the first, second and third class railway fears = 6: 4: 1
and the ratio of the passengers of three classes = 2: 5: 50
The ratio of the amount of three classes = (2 x 6): (5 x 4): (50 x 1) =12: 20: 50
= 6: 10: 25
Total amount collected = 12300
Amount collected by the first class passengers = 6 x 12300/41 =Rs.1800
Hence, Rs.1800 collected from the first class passengers.
