first determine value of x ; x/2+x/3+x/4 = 117
we get x= 108
so B share ; 36
IMO C

Given ratios = A: B: C= 1/2:1/3:1/4 = 6:4:3 (Multiplying by 12, LCM of 2,3 and 4)

The portion of B = 4/13 *117 = 4*9 = 36(C)

If $117 is divided among A, B and C such that their shares are in the [#permalink] ### Show Tags Solution Given In this question, we are given that •$117 is divided among A, B, and C
• Ratio of shares of A, B, and C = $$\frac{1}{2}: \frac{1}{3}: \frac{1}{4} = (\frac{1}{2} * 12): (\frac{1}{3} * 12): (\frac{1}{4} * 12) = 6: 4: 3$$

To find
We need to determine
• The amount that B got

Approach and Working out
As the ratio of their share is 6: 4: 3,
• Share of B = $$117 * \frac{4}{(6 + 4 + 3)} = 117 * \frac{4}{13} = 36$$

Thus, option C is the correct answer.
