A’s income exceeds that of B’s by Rs.2,000 and B’s income is 40% less than that of C’s. If the total income of all of them put together is Rs.35,000, what is the income of C?

Let B’s income = x Therefore, A’s income = x + 2000 => 60% of C’s income = x; C's income = 5x/3 => x + 2000 + x + 5x/3 = 35,000 => 11x/3 = 35,000 - 2000 => x = 9000 Therefore, C's income = (5 ×9000)/3 = Rs. 15000
