      Solution

      Let the Principal for 1st part be A Principal for 2nd part be B Principal for 3rd  part be C According to the question,  (A ×4 ×3)/100=  (B ×6 ×4)/100=  (C ×8×5)/100  12A = 24B = 40C (LCM of 12, 24 and 40) = 120 12A /120= 24B/120 = 40C/120 A/10 = B/5 = C/3 So A:B:C = 10 : 5 : 3 A =10/18×25200= 14000, B ==5/18×25200= 7000 and C = =3/18×25200=4200
