therefore the total amount=₹[5x+2x]

here,it is given that 5x-2x=900

3x=900

hence,x=300

now,

amount personA got=5x=5*300=1500

amount personB got=2x=2*300=600

and so,the total amount=5x+2x=1500+600=2100

As per the question,

5x - 2x = 900

3x = 900

x = 300

Total amount = 5x + 2x = 7x = 7(300) = 2100

First person got = 5(300) = 1500

Second person got = 2(300) = 600
