An amount of money is divided among L, M and N in the ratio of 2:3:6, respectively. If the amount received by N is Rs.6000 more than the amount received by M, then what is the total amount received by L and M together?

Ratio = 2 : 3 : 6 = 2x : 3x : 6x => N = 6000 + M => N – M = 6000 => 6x – 3x = 6000 => x = 2000 Total amount received by L and M = 2x + 3x = 5x = 5×2000 = Rs. 10000
