Question 30

# Total property of Ghosh Babu (in Rs.lakh) is

Solution

The total property consists of cash, gold coins and silver bars.
And ghosh babu gave equal parts to 4 daughters, hence they should have 25% of total property each.
As eldest daughter possess gold coins as 20% worth of total property, so 25000 cash should be equal to 5% of total property.
So total property will be =$$\frac{ 25000 \times 100}{5}$$ = 500000
