Last time I visited a friend’s farm near Bangalore he gave me a bag containing 1000 peanuts. From this I took out 230 peanuts for use in my own home and gave away the bag with the remainder of peanuts to three little brothers who live in my neighbourhood and told them to distribute the nuts between themselves in proportion to their ages which together amounted to 17.5 years.
Tinku, Rinku and Jojo, the three brothers, divided the nuts in the following manner:
As often as Tinku took four Rinku took three and as often as Tinku took six Jojo took seven.
With this data can you find out what were the respective ages of the boys and how many nuts each got?
