2) A sum of money is to be distributed among A, B, C, D in the ratio 7 ∶ 5 ∶ 4 ∶ 2. If C gets Rs 500 more than D, what will be the share of B?

**Given:**

Money distributed among A, B, C, D in the ratio 7 ∶ 5 ∶ 4 ∶ 2

And C gets Rs. 500 more than D

**Calculation**:

Let A, B, C, and D be 7x, 5x, 4x and 2x respectively.

According to the question,

C gets Rs. 500 more than D. So,

4x - 2x = 500

⇒ 2x = 500

⇒ x = 250

Now we calculate all values

A = 7x = 7× 250 = Rs. 1750

B = 5x = 5 × 250 = **Rs. 1250**

C = 4x = 4 × 250 = Rs. 1000

D = 2x = 2 × 250 = Rs. 500

**∴ The share of B will be Rs. 1250**
