A certain sum of money was divided between A, B and C in the ratio 1 :...
Let, the distributed amount among A, B and C are x, 3x and 5x respectively
Given,
‘A’ received amount = Rs. 500
∴ x = 500
⟹ ‘B’ received amount = Rs. (500 × 3) = Rs. 1500
⟹ ‘C’ received amount = Rs. (500 × 5) = Rs. 2500
⟹ Sum of money = Rs. (500 + 1500 + 2500) = Rs. 4500

A certain sum of money was divided between A, B and C in the ratio 1 :...
Given that the ratio of the division of money between A, B, and C is 1:3:5. Let's assume the common ratio is 'x'.

So, A's share = 1x
B's share = 3x
C's share = 5x

According to the question, A received Rs. 500. So, we can write:

1x = 500

To find the sum divided among A, B, and C, we need to find the value of 'x'.

Simplifying the equation:

x = 500/1
x = 500

Now, we know the value of 'x', we can find the sum divided among A, B, and C.

Sum divided = A's share + B's share + C's share
= 1x + 3x + 5x
= 9x

Substituting the value of 'x':

Sum divided = 9 * 500
= 4500

Therefore, the sum divided among A, B, and C is Rs. 4500. Hence, the correct answer is option B.
