The ratio of A to B is 4 : 5 and that of B to C is 2 : 3. If A equals 800, C equals :

The ratio of A to B is 4 : 5 and that of B to C is 2 : 3. If A equals 800, C equals :
[A]1000
[B]1200
[C]1500
[D]2000

1500
A : B = 4 : 5
B : C = 2 : 3
\therefore A : B : C = 4\times 2 : 5\times 2 : 5\times 3
= 8 : 10 : 15
If A equals 800, then C equals 1500.
Hence option [C] is correct answer.
