Given, that A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2

5% of the total profit goes to charity.

A's share is Rs. 885

We have to find the total profit.

Let the total profit be Rs. 100

The amount given to charity = 5/100 × 100

= Rs. 5

Remaining amount = 100 - 5 = Rs. 95

A's share = 3/(3+2) x 95

= 3/5 x 95

= 3 x 19

= Rs. 57

When total profit is Rs. 100, A's share is Rs. 57

When A's share is Rs. 855, total profit = 100 x 855/57

= 100 x 15

= Rs. 1500

Therefore, the total profit is Rs. 1500

Summary:

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A's share is Rs.855, the total profit is:

Rs. 1425

Rs. 1500

Rs. 1537.50

Rs. 1576

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A's share is Rs.855, the total profit is Rs. 1500.
