For dealing with, A receive = 5% of Rs. 7400 = Rs. 370. Balance = Rs. (7400 - 370) = Rs. 7030. Ratio of their contribution = (6500 x 6) : (8400 x 5) : (10000 x 3) = 39000 : 42000 : 30000 = 13 : 14 : 10 B's share = Rs.7030 X = 2660 ## 20) Three partners shared the profit in a business in the proportion 5: 7: 8.

- Rs. 700
S.I. for 1 year = Rs. (854 - 815) = Rs. 39. S.I. for 3 year = Rs.(39 x 3) = Rs. 117. Principal = Rs.

- 360 km ph
- 600 km ph
- 720 km ph
Distance = (240 x 5) = 1200 km. Speed = Distance/Time Speed = 1200/ (5/3) km/hr. Appropriate speed = 1200 x 3/5 km/hr= 720 km/hr. ## 37) If a man strolls at 14 km/hr rather than 10 km/hr, he would have strolled 20 km more. The actual distance traveled by him is:- 50 km
