Aditya, Sonal and Nutan contributed Rs 50,000 for business. Aditya contributed Rs 4000 more than Sonal and Sonal contributed Rs 5,000 more than Nutan. Out of total profit of Rs 70,000 how much did Aditya receive?



A Rs 16,000
B Rs 18,000
C Rs 20,000
D Rs 21,000
E None of these

Ans. E Let Nutan contribute x

Then Sonal contribute x + 5000

Aditya contribute = (x+5000) +4000

X + 9000

Then x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000

3x = 36000, x = 12000

Means Nutan : Sonal : Aditya = 12000 : 17000 : 21000

= 12 : 17 : 21

Now Aditya profit = (21/50)*70000 =Rs 29400
