Share calculation


To answer this problem we use share formula which is ;

Share Of A Share Holder = \frac{Total }{Sum Of All  Rtios}\times Ratio Of Share Holder

Here sum of ratios = 1/3+1/4+1/5=(20+15+12)/60=47/60

and Ratio of first son = 1/3

Put values in above formula;

\Rightarrow Share Of First Son = \frac{846}{47/60}\times 1/3

\Rightarrow Share Of First Son = \frac{846\times 60}{47}\times 1/3

\Rightarrow Share Of First Son = \frac{846\times 20}{47}

\Rightarrow Share Of First Son = Rs 360

So first son will get Rs 360
