Solution:

1st Condition

A gets half of B and then again as much as B gets

2nd Condition

B gets twice as much as C

Now as the amount is being divided among A, B and C , so, sum of shares of all three should make 2160;

Put values from eq (1) and (2) in eq (3)

Again put value of B from eq(2)

This is C’s share. Now put this value of C in eq (2);

This is B’s share. Now put  value of B in eq (1);

So shares of A, B and C are 1080,  720 and 360 respectively
