# What is the Profit share of B? If

A and 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:

- Rs.1425
- Rs. 1500
- Rs.1537.50
- None of these

**Answer: (2) Rs.1500
Explanation:-**

A and B invest in a business in the ratio = 3: 2

Let be the total profit = Rs.100

After paying to charity, A’s share = 95 x 3/5 = Rs.57

If A share is Rs.57

Then, total profit = Rs.100

If A’s share Rs.855

Then, total profit = 100 x 855/57 = Rs.1500

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs.1500
