The difference between 2:5 and 5:2 is 3/7. 3/7 is \$600, thus 1/7 is \$200, giving \$1400 for the whole.

Hi,

### A sum of money was shared between A,B,C so that A received 1/4 of the sum, and the remainder was shared between B and C in the ratio 3:2. Find the ratio in which the sum was shared between A, B and C

A received 1/4. B and split the other 3/4. B got 3/5 of 3/4 and C got 2/5 of 3/4, so B got (3/4)*(3/5) or 9/20 and C got (3/4)*(2/5) or 6/20. Taking the common denominator of 20, A got 5/20, B got 9/20, and C got 6/20. Multiplying everything by 20 gives 5:9:6.
