arithmetic - monoj and nayan invest in a business in the ratio 3 2 assume that 5 of the total profit goes to charity if manojs share is rs 855 what is the total profit - skillgun

Assume that the total profit is x.
Since 5% goes for charity, 95% of x will be divided between Manoj and Nayan in the ratio 3: 2
=> Manoj's profit = (95x/100) * (3/5) = 855
=> 95x/100 = 855*5/3 = 285*5 = 1425
=> x = 1425 * 100/95 = 285 * 100/19
=> x = 1500
Hence the total profit = 1500
