Rs 2500 is distributed amongst A, B and C in such a way that c's share is one-fourth of A and B's share and B's share is 90% of A's share.What is c's share?

I am weak in math.Please,solve it in such a way that it can be easily understandable to me.


"Rs 2500 is distributed amongst A, B and C"
a+b+c = 2500

"B's share is 90% of A's share"
b = 0.90a

"C's share is one-fourth of A and B's share"
c = 0.25(a+b)
 = 0.25(a+0.90a)
 = 0.25(1.90a)
 = 0.475a

a + 0.90a + 0.475a = 2500
a = 20,000/19
b = 0.90a = 18000/19
c = 0.25(a+b)
 = 0.25(2000)
 = Rs 500
