Let,s C subscribe=Rs x
Then B subscribe=x+5000=y
& A subscribe=y+4000=z
x+y+z=50,000
x+(x+5000)+(x+5000+4000)=50,000
=> x=12000
y=12000+5000=17000
z=12000+5000+4000=21000
A subscribe Rs 21000 ie 42% of Total amount of Rs 50000
so A's Profit=42% of Total profit of Rs 35000
=42/100*35000=14700
Ans:A's profit is Rs 14700
