Four car rental agencies A, B, C and D rented a plot for parking their cars during the night. A parked 15 cars for 12 days, B parked 12 cars for 20 days, C parked 18 cars for 18 days and D parked 16 cars for 15 days. If A paid Rs. 1125 as rent for parking his cars, what is the total rent paid by all the four agencies?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option C
The ratio in which the four agencies will be paying the rents = 15 * 12 : 12 * 20 : 18 * 18 : 16 * 15
= 180 : 240 : 324 : 240 = 45 : 60 : 81 : 60
Let us consider the four amounts to be 45k, 60k, 81k and 60k respectively.
The total rent paid by the four agencies = 45k + 60k + 81k + 60k= 246k
It is given that A paid Rs. 1125
45k = 1125 => k = 25
246k = 246(25) = Rs. 6150
Thus the total rent paid by all the four agencies is Rs. 6150.
