Rs 13500 are to be distributed among Salma,
Question:

Rs 13500 are to be distributed among Salma, Kiran and Jenifer in such a way that Salma gets Rs 1000 more than Kiran and Jenifer gets Rs

500 more than Kiran. Find the money received by Jenifer.

Solution:

Let the money received by Kiran be $₹ x$.

Then, the money received by Salma $=₹(x+1000)$ and the money received by Jenifer $=₹(x+500)$

According to the question,

$x+x+1000+x+500=13500$

$\Rightarrow$ $3 x+1500=13500$

$\Rightarrow$ $3 x=13500-1500$

$\Rightarrow \quad 3 x=12000$

$\Rightarrow$ $x=\frac{12000}{3}$

$\therefore$ $x=4000$

Hence, the money received by Jenifer $=₹ 4000+500=₹ 4500$
