Explanation:-
Answer : CDiscuss it below :Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months; Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively.
Then, 14x: 8y: 7z = 5 : 7 : 8.
Now, w'll find out y^{14x}_{ = } ^{ 5 }_{ <=> 70x = 40y}^{8y} ^{7}
_{ z = }^{70}_{ y = } ^{ 7}_{ x}^{4} ^{5}
and, find out x ^{14x}_{ = } ^{ 5 }_{ <=> 112x = 35z}^{7z} ^{8}
_{ z = }^{112}_{ x = } ^{ 16}_{ x}^{35} ^{5}
so x : y : z = x : ^{7}/_{4}^{16}/_{5}!! OOPS Login [Click here] is required to post your answer/resultHelp other students, write article, leave your comments |
