# Mr. X invested a certain amount in Debit and Equity Funds in the ratio of 4 : 5 respectively. At the end of one year, he earned a total dividend of 30% on his investment. After one year he reinvested the amount including dividend in the ratio of 6 : 7 in Debt and Equity Funds. If the amount reinvested in Equity Funds was Rs.94,500/-, what was the original amount invested in Equity Funds ?

 A) Rs.75,000/ B) Rs. 81,000/ C) Rs. 60,000/ D) Rs. 65,000/ E) None of these

 A) Rs.75,000/

Let the common ratio be x

The amount invested in Debit Funds = 4x

The amount invested in Equiity Funds = 5x

After one year, Mr. X's total amoount (including dividend) = $$4x \times \frac{130}{100} + 5x \times \frac{130}{100}$$

11.7x

Amount reinvested in Equity Funds = $$11.7x \times \frac{7}{13}$$

$$11.7x \times \frac{7}{13} = 94500$$

6.3x = 94500

x = 15000

The original amount invested in Equity Funds = $$5 \times 15000 = Rs.75000/-$$
