Suppose B invested Rs. x for y months Then, A invested Rs. 3x for 2y months $\begin{array}{l} \text { So, A : B } \\ =(3 x \times 2 y):(x \times y) \\ =6 x y: x y \\ =6: 1 \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{l}\therefore\text{B’;s profit : Total profit}\\ =1\ :\ 7\\ \text{Let the total profit is Rs. x}\\ \text{Then,}\\ \Large\frac{1}{7}=\frac{4000}{x}\\ \Rightarrow x=28000\end{array}$
