Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : Rs. 11250

Given:

A ∶ B ∶ C = 3 ∶ 5 ∶ 7

C - A = Rs. 3000

Calculation:

A ∶ B ∶ C = 3 ∶ 5 ∶ 7

A = 3k, B = 5k, C = 7k

Now,

⇒ C - A = 3000

⇒ 7k - 3k = 3000

⇒ 4k = 3000

⇒ k = 750

Total Amount divided into A, B and C

⇒ A + B + C

⇒ 3k + 5k + 7k

⇒ 15k 

⇒ 15 × 750

⇒ 11250

∴ The total amount is Rs. 11250.
