Share of C is 180. Bcoz A.B.C all are work in 3 days only so the total amount divided as equal

C share is : Rs 237.5 if he work along with A , Rs 270 if he work along with B

Harry is correct !

Worked shared between A, B & C are 37.5%,49.98%,12.51% respectively and hence Rs 570 should be shared accordingly. So C will get Rs 67.5 (A-Rs.202.5, B-Rs.270)

Money will be divided among A, B, and C in the ratio of 3: 4 : 1 . So share of C will be Rs. 67.5.

A's work of one day is 1/8. b's one day work is 1/6.( A+B+C)'s one day work is 1/3.so c's one day work is 1/3-(1/8+1/6)=1/24 distribute 540 in the ratio of A:B:C :: 8:6:24.341.05 will be c's share.

A work in 3 days= 3/8

simlar B =3/6

so C  3dys work = 1-(3/8+3/6), =1/8

shre wil b 3/8 :3/6:1/8=3:4:1,

c shr = 540*1/7=77.1

The answer is 67.8 because,A should take 540/8*3=202.2B should take540/6*3=270There fore C should take 67.8

1day work of A B & C are
1/8 , 1/6 & 1/x
which sums up to give 1/3
1/8 + 1/6 + 1 /x = 1/3
x = 24

they are in ratio 8:6:24   total is 38
so 540/38 = 14.2

so individually for C its comes to -->> 24 * 14.2 = 340.8///

A takes: 8 days thus: 1/8th of the work done nd

B takes: 6 days thus: 1/6th of the work done nd

all three: 3 days: thus: 1/3 for (A+B+C) of the work done:

thus C took: 1/3-(1/8+1/6)=1/24

thus ratio is:

3:4:1

thus 3x+4x+x=540

=> x=67.5 is the C's share.

A = 1/8 , B = 1/6.

A+B+C = 1/3 implies C = 1/24

So A:B:C = 1/8:1/6:1/24=3:4:1 ==> 8x=540==>x=67.5

So, C = 67.5

Rato is 3:4:2 so C share is 120

#### seth

A and B do 7/24 of particular work in one day.

A, B and C take 3days that mean A, B and C do 1/3 of particular work in one day.

1/3 = 8/24 of particular work in one day.

so, C can 1/24 of particular work in a day.

reward is 540 that means C takes 540/24 ...> 22.5

A work in 3 days= 3/8

similar B =3/6

so C 3dys work = 1-(3/8+3/6), =1/8

share will b 3/8 :3/6:1/8=3:4:1,

c shr = 540*1/8=67.1
