Question 2

# Four sheep farmers rented a pasture, Anil grazed his 24 sheep for 3 months, Bimal 10 sheep for 5 months, Champak 35 sheep for 4 months and Damodar 21 sheep for 3 months,. If Anil’s share of rent is Rs. 720, find the total rent of the pasture :

Solution

A : B : C : D = 24($$\frac{3}{12}$$) : 10($$\frac{5}{12}$$) : 35($$\frac{4}{12}$$) : 21($$\frac{3}{12}$$)

A : B : C ; D = 6 : $$\frac{25}{6}$$ : $$\frac{35}{3}$$ : $$\frac{21}{4}$$

A : B: C : D = 72 : 50 : 140 : 63

Anil's rent = $$\frac{72}{72+50+140+63}\times\$$ Total rent

720 = $$\frac{72}{325}\times\$$ T

T = Rs 3,250
