## Show Answer

Solution(By Apex Team)

Let C = x.
Then, B = x + 5000 and A = x + 5000 + 4000 = x + 9000
So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000
⇒ 3x = 36000
⇒ x = 12000
A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12
$\begin{aligned}&\text{So, A’s share}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }35000\times\frac{21}{50}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }14700\end{aligned}$
