Solution

Amount of share to the Soldiers’ Welfare Fund = 2% of 24500

= 490 rupees

The profit is shared in the proportion 3:7.

Therefore, A’s share to the Fund is given by

= $\frac{3}{10}\times 490$

= 147 rupees

Therefore, B’s share to the Fund is given by

= $\frac{7}{10}\times 490$

= 343 rupees

Hence, A's and B's share to the fund are 147 and 343 rupees respectively.

= 490 rupees

The profit is shared in the proportion 3:7.

Therefore, A’s share to the Fund is given by

= $\frac{3}{10}\times 490$

= 147 rupees

Therefore, B’s share to the Fund is given by

= $\frac{7}{10}\times 490$

= 343 rupees

Hence, A's and B's share to the fund are 147 and 343 rupees respectively.
