A's share=855
B's Share=(855/3)*2=570
A+B=855+570=1425.................(95%)
Chairity =(1425/95)*5=75.........(5%)
Total profit=1425+75=1500

Let the total profit be Rs. 100.
After paying to charity, A's share = Rs. (95)*3/5 = Rs. 57.
If A's share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100.
If A's share Rs. 855, total profit = (100/57)*855 =1500.
