# X and Y invest in a business in the ratio 2 : 3

X and Y invest in a business in the ratio 2 : 3. After donating 10% of the total profit to a school, X gets Rs. 900 as profit. Then Y’s profit is

- Rs.1,600
- Rs.2,500
- Rs.2,250
- Rs.1,350

**Answer: (2) Rs.2,500**

**Solution:-**

Let the total profit be Rs.100

After paying to charity, A’s share = Rs. (90 x 2/5)

= Rs.36

If A’s share is Rs.36, total profit = Rs.100

If A’s share Rs.900,

Then, total profit = 100 x 900/36

= 100 x 50/2

= 50 x 50

= Rs.2500

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) Rs.2,500.
