# What was the Total Amount? If

A certain amount was divided between A and B in the ratio 4:3. If B’s share was Rs.4800, the total amount was:

- Rs.11,200
- Rs..6400
- Rs.19,200
- Rs.39,200

**Answer: (1) Rs.11, 200**

**Explanation:-**

Let the amount of A = 4 X & amount of B = 3 X

B’s share = 3 X = Rs.4800

3 X = 4800

X = 4800/3

X = 1600

Then, he total amount = 4 X + 3 X

= 7 X = 7 x 1600

= Rs.11, 200

Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.11, 200.
