# The average price of three items of furniture is Rs. 15000. If their prices are in the ratio 3 : 5 : 7, the price of the cheapest item is-

A. Rs. 9000

B. Rs. 15000

C. Rs. 18000

D. Rs. 21000

Answer: Option A

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

Let their prices be 3x, 5x and 7x respectively
Then,
⇒ 3x + 5x + 7x = 15000 × 3
⇒ 15x = 45000
⇒ x = 3000
∴ Cost of cheapest item
= Rs. (3000 × 3)
= Rs. 9000
