Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l} \text { Dilip : Ram : Avtar }\\ =2700: 8100: 7200\\ =3: 9: 8 \end{array}$ $\begin{aligned}&\text{Let the total profit be Rs. x}\\ &\text{Then, Ram’s share}\\ &=\text{ Rs. }\left(\frac{9}{20}x\right)\\ &\therefore\frac{9}{20}x=3600\\ &\Rightarrow x=\left(\frac{3600\times20}{9}\right)\\ &\Rightarrow x=8000\\ &\therefore\text{Total profit}=\text{Rs.}\ 8000\end{aligned}$
