A, B and C completed a work Costing Rs.1800. A worked for 6 days, B worked for 4 days and C worked for 9 days, If their daily wages are in the ratio of 5: 6: 4, how much amount will be received by A?

A) Rs.600

B) Rs.500

C) Rs.900

D) Rs.450

Correct Answer:
A) Rs.600

Description for Correct answer:
Ratio of the wages of A, B and C = 5 : 6 : 4

A's share : B's share : C's share

= \( \Large 6 \times 5 \) : \( \Large 4 \times 6 \) : \( \Large 9 \times 4 \)

= 30 : 24 : 36 - 5 : 4 : 6

Therefore, A's share = \( \Large \frac{5}{15} \times 1800 \) = Rs.600
