### Question

When a certain amount of money was distributed among 8 boys, each of them got Rs. 36 more than the amount received by 14 boys when the same amount was distributed among them. What was the amount?

**A**

Rs. 672.

**B**

Rs. 674.

**C**

Rs. 670.

**D**

Rs. 676.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

If x is the amount, $x/8 - x/14 = 36$, which can be re-arranged to get x = ${36 × 14 × 8}/{14 - 8}$ = Rs. 672.
