Q:

A farmer divides his herd of k cows among his 4 sons, so that one son gets one half of the herd, the second gets one-fourth, the third gets one-fifth and the fourth gets 9 cows. Then k is equal to ?

A) 160 B) 120
C) 140 D) 180
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 180

Explanation:

Given total number of cows = k
Now, 1st son share = k/2
2nd son share = k/4
3rd son share = k/5
4th son share = 9

(k) + (k/4) + (k/5) + 9 = k
=> k - (19k/20) = 9
=> (20k-19k)/20 = 9
=> k = 180.
