$\begin{array}{l}
\text { Dilip : Ram : Avtar }\\
=2700: 8100: 7200\\
=3: 9: 8
\end{array}$
$\begin{aligned}&\text{Let the total profit be Rs. x}\\
&\text{Then, Ram’s share}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }\left(\frac{9}{20}x\right)\\
&\therefore\frac{9}{20}x=3600\\
&\Rightarrow x=\left(\frac{3600\times20}{9}\right)\\
&\Rightarrow x=8000\\
&\therefore\text{Total profit}=\text{Rs.}\ 8000\end{aligned}$
