1/7 th of the passenger of a train were children,3/5 th of the passenger were gents and the rest were ladies.If the number of ladies in the train was 360. Find the total number of passengers in the train.

Suppose the total number of passengers in the train is x.
So, number of children = 17th of total passenger = x7
Number of gents = 35 of total passenger = 3x5
Then number of ladies = Total passenger - (number of children + number of gents)
360 = x-x7+3x5360 = x-5x+21x35360 = x-26x35360 = 35x-26x359x35 = 360x = 360×359 = 1400
Therefore total number of passengers in the train is 1400.
