Question

If $26/57$ of A's amount is $13/19$ of B's amount, and the total amount they have is Rs. 3000, what is the amount with A?

A

Rs. 1800.

B

Rs. 1802.

C

Rs. 1798.

D

Rs. 1804.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the amounts with them be A and B. So $26/57$A = $13/19$B, which can be re-arranged to get A : B = 3 : 2. So A = $3/5 × 3000$ = Rs. 1800.
