a sum of money was divded between rajeev and ashish so that rajiv gets 7/19 of the whole amount. if he gets rupees 5600, how much was the total sum.

*x*.

Rajiv gets $\frac{7}{19}$ times of

*x*and his share is equal to 5600.

this means,

$\frac{7x}{19}$ = 5600

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{5600\times 19}{7}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=\frac{106400}{7}=\mathrm{Rs}.15200\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Thus, the total sum

*x*is Rs. 15200.
