Chandan received Rs. 6000 as his share out of the total profit of Rs. 9000 which he and Ankush earned at the end of one year. If Chandan invested Rs. 20,000 for 6 months, whereas Ankush invested his amount for the whole year, what was the amount invested by Ankush?
Suppose Ankush invested Rs. x.
Then, Chandan : Ankush = (20000 x 6) : (x * 12)
=> 120000/12x = 6000/3000
=> x = 120000/24 = 5000.
