A. Rs. 1900
B. Rs. 2660
C. Rs. 2800
D. Rs. 2840


Total money invested by A,B,C respectively : 6500*6 ; 8400*5 ; 10000*3 = 39000 ; 42000 ; 30000. The split of the profit will done in the ratio of money invested. Thus, the ratio = 13:14:10. Also, the total profit to be split is the amount after giving 5% to A--> 7400*0.95. B's share : \frac{14}{37}*7400*0.95 = 14*0.95*200 = 2660.

B.

Where in the question is it written that the split in profit will be according to the investment :). I dont think GMAT will leave such an assumption open for test takers.

Is there an easy place here to round that I missed? The math on this took me forever and I don't want to be long-multiplying on the GMAT.

I got to \frac{42}{111} * \frac{19}{20} * 7400

and I got to that point after about a minute fo simplifying... blah.

You should realize that you can still factor out 3 from\frac{42}{111}, and that will give you \frac{14}{37}.Also, 37*2 = 74.So, you end up with 14*\frac{19}{20}*200= 190*14 = 19*14*10. The only option with a 6 in the tens digit is B.

This probably isn't significant, but it threw me off. What does the Rs. stand for before the amounts invested/profit earned.

Hi Bunuel,

can you shed some light on this one ? How can we presume that profit is to be split after taking off 5% for A ? Does this type of question appear in GMAT ?

This is not a GMAT question. So, I wouldn't worry about it at all.
