Raju and Sohan invest in a business in the ratio 3:2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and Raju's share is Rs.1710, then what is the total profit.

Since investment is in the ratio 3:2 profits are also of the same ratio.
Let total profit be P
Now Raju's profit is described as
(3÷5)×P - (5÷100)×(3÷5)×P = 1710
P = 3000
