Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}
\text { Let } \mathrm{C}=x \\
\text { Then, } \mathrm{B}=x+5000 \text { and } \\
\mathrm{A}=x+5000+4000=x+9000 \\
\text { So, } \\
\Rightarrow x+x+5000+x+9000=50000 \\
\Rightarrow 3 x=36000 \\
\Rightarrow x=12000 \\
\therefore \mathrm{A}: \mathrm{B}: \mathrm{C} \\
=21000: 17000: 12000 \\
=21: 17: 12
\end{array}$
$\begin{aligned}&\therefore\text{A’s share}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }\left(35000\times\frac{21}{50}\right)\\
&=\text{ Rs. }14700\end{aligned}$
