# A particular amount of cash was distributed in the ratio of 3: 7. If the smallest share was rupees 2,100, what was the total amount of cash which was distributed ?

**Given :**

The amount was distributed in the ratio of 3 : 7.

The smallest share is 2100.

**To find :**

We have to find the total amount.

**Solution :**

Let the shares of amount be 3x and 7x.

The smallest share,

$3 x = 2100$

$x = \frac{2100}{3}$

$x = 700$

The total amount distributed $= 3 x + 7 x = 10 x$

$ 10 x = 10 (700) = 7000$

**The total amount distributed is 7000.**
