The sum of three numbers is 98. If the ratio of the first to the second is 2 : 3 and that of the second to the third is 5 : 8, then the second number is

- 20
- 30
- 48
- 58

**Answer**

LCM of 3 and 5 = 15

Let three numbers be 10x, 15x and 24x

10x + 15x + 24x = 49x = 98

x = 2

Three numbers are 20, 30 and 48. Second number is 30.

**The correct option is B.**
