Explanation:

A grazed 20 cows for 6 months = 20×6 = 120 cows

B grazed 40 cows for 4 months = 40×4 = 160 cows

C grazed 30 cows for 5 months = 30×5 = 150 cows

A : B : C’s Ratio of share = 120 : 160 : 150 = 12 : 16 : 15

A’s share of rent is Rs. 240.

Total share of rent = 240\12 ×43 = Rs.860

Three milkmen rented a pasture to graze their cows. A grazed 20 cows for 6 months, B grazed 40 cows for 4 months and C grazed 30 cows for 5 months.

If A’s share of rent is Rs.240, then the total rent of the field is Rs.860. This means that the three milkmen paid a total of Rs.860 to rent the pasture for their cows to graze.

In order to find out the total share of the rent, we divide the total rent by the number of cows that each milkman grazed.

A grazed 20 cows for 6 months, so his share of rent is Rs.240. B grazed 40 cows for 4 months, so his share of rent is Rs.320. C grazed 30 cows for 5 months, so his share of rent is Rs.300.

So the total rent of the field is Rs.860, and the three milkmen paid a total of

Rs.860to rent it.
