Ahmed, Batuk And Chand Share $1000 In The Ratio 8:7:5. Calculate The Amount Each Receives.

As given:

Total shares = $1000

The Ratio 8:7:5.

Let the common factor be x

Share of Ahmed be 8x

Share of Batuk be 7x

Share of Chand be 5x

Therefore, the total share = 20c.

[latex]\Rightarrow 20x = 1000[/latex] [latex]\Rightarrow x = \frac{1000}{20}[/latex] [latex]\Rightarrow x = 50.[/latex]

Therefore, the total amount each receives is:

Share of Ahmed is 8x = 8 * 50 = $400

Share of Batuk is 7x = 7 * 50 = $350

Share of Chand is 5x = 5 * 50 = $250
