Answer :

We know that ratio of profit share is equal to ratio of capital invested.


Ratio of capitals of three persons is = 3:8:5 .


Ratio of profits of three persons is = 3:8:5


Given, profit of 1st person is ₹60 less of the 3rd person.


Let their profits be 3x, 8x and 5x.


5x-3x = 60


2x = 60


X = 30


Thus, Total profit = 3×30 + 8×30 + 5×30


= 90 + 240 + 150


= ₹480
