CAT 2017 [slot 1] Question with solution 08

Question 8:
Suppose, C1, C2, C3, C4, and C5 are five companies. The profits made by Cl, C2, and C3 are in the ratio 9 : 10 : 8 while the profits made by C2, C4, and C5 are in the ratio 18 : 19 : 20. If C5 has made a profit of Rs 19 crore more than C1, then the total profit (in Rs) made by all five companies is
  1. 438 crore
  2. 435 crore
  3. 348 crore
  4. 345 crore
Option: 1
Explanation:

Given,

C1 : C2 : C3 = 9 : 10 : 8 ... i

C2 : C4 : C5 = 18 : 19 : 20 ... ii

Let's multiply i by 9 and ii by 5

C1 : C2 : C3 = 81 : 90 : 72

C2 : C4 : C5 = 90 : 95 : 100

Therefore, C1 : C2 : C3 : C4 : C5 = 81 : 90 : 72 : 95 : 100

Given,

100x - 81x = 19

x = 1

Hence, total profit = 100 + 95 + 72 + 90 + 81 = 438
