Solution(By Apex Team)

Let total capital be Rs. x Then, $\begin{array}{l}\Rightarrow\left(\frac{x}{3}\times\frac{7}{100}\times1\right)+\left(\frac{x}{4}\times\frac{8}{100}\times1\right)+\left(\frac{5x}{12}\times\frac{10}{100}\times1\right)=561\\ \Rightarrow\frac{7x}{300}+\frac{x}{50}+\frac{x}{24}=561\\ \Rightarrow51x=(561\times600)\\ \Rightarrow x=\left(\frac{561\times600}{51}\right)\\ =6600\end{array}$
