Q10. A man has 3 sons, 2 daughters and a wife. They divided a sum of Rs. 23000 among themselves such that each daughter got 2.5 times the amount received by each son and his wife received 400 less than each son. What is the total amount (in Rs.) received by the 3 sons together?
(a) 7800
(b) 6900
(c) 6300
(d) 5700

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the amount received by each son be Rs. x
∴ ATQ,
3x + 2 × 2.5x + (x – 400) = 23000
⇒ 3x + 5x + x – 400 = 23000
⇒ 9x = 23400
⇒ x = 2600
∴ Total amount by 3 sons together = 3 × 2600 = Rs. 7800
