On the market, Mrs. Jain and Mrs. Sharma sell apples. Mrs. Jain sells her apples per two for Rs 50. The apples of Mrs. Sharma are a bit smaller; she sells hers per three for Rs 50. At a certain moment, when both women have the same amount of apples left, Mrs. Sharma is being called away. She asks her neighbor to take care of her goods. To make everything not too complicated, Mrs. Jain puts all apples to one big pile, and starts selling them for Rs 100 per five apples. When Mrs. Sharma returns at the end of the day, all apples have been sold. However, when they start dividing the money, there appears to be a shortage of Rs 350.

Supposing they divide the amount of money equally, how much does Mrs. Jain lose with this deal?
