A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3 : 2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A's share is Rs. 855, the total profit is :

a

500

b

After paying to charity, A's share  = $\inline (95\times \frac{3}{5})$ = Rs. 57.
If A's share is Rs. 855, total profit  = $\inline (\frac{100}{57}\times 855)$ = 1500.
