Open in App

Solution

Let The Amount Babita Receive Be x

Ahmed'share = 5x

Ahmed's share is 3 times the share of john

3*John's share = ahmed's share = 5x

John's share = 5x/3

total = 1380

x+5x+5x/3 = 1380

3x+15x+5x / 3 = 1380

23x/3 = 1380

x = 1380*3 / 23 = Rs 180

Babita's share = rs 180

Ahmed's share = 5*180 = 900

John's share = 5*180/3 = 300
