A received = 5% of Rs. 7400 = Rs. 370.

Balance = Rs. (7400 - 370) = Rs. 7030.

Ratio of their investments = (6500 x 6) : (8400 x 5) : (10000 x 3)

= 39000 : 42000 : 30000

= 13 : 14 : 10

B's share = Rs. ( 7030 * 14/37) = Rs. 2660

For managing, A received = 5% of Rs. 7400 = Rs. 370.
Balance = Rs. (7400 - 370) = Rs. 7030.
Ratio of their investments = (6500*6) : (8400*5) : (10000*3)
=> 39000 : 42000 : 30000
=> 13 : 14 : 10

B's share = Rs.(7030*14)/37= Rs. 2660.
