Once you attempt the question then PrepInsta explanation will be displayed.

The ratio of the takes of shahrukh and salman is 3 : 5.

The ratio of the takes of salman and amitabh is 3 : 5.

Salman's takes is the common link to both these ratios.

Therefore, if we make the numerical value of the ratio of Salman's takes in both the ratios same, then we can compare the takes of all 3 in a single ratio.

This can be done by getting the value of Salman's takes in both ratios to be the LCM of 3 and 5 i.e., 15.

The first ratio between Shahrukh and Salman's takes will therefore be 9 : 15 and

The second ratio between Salman and Amitabh’s takes will be 15 : 25.

Now combining the two ratios, we get Shahrukh : Salman : Amitabh = 9 : 15 : 25.

Let their takes be 9x, 15x and 25x.

Then, the sum of their takes will be 9x + 15x + 25x = 49x

The question states that the sum of their takes is 147.

i.e., 49x = 147 or x = 3.

Therefore, Salman's takes = 15x = 15×3 = 45
