$Let \, the\, total\, profit \, be \, Rs. 100$

$After\, paying \, to \, charity,\, A's\, share = Rs. \left ( 95\ast 3/5 \right ) = Rs 57$

$If \, A's\: share \: is\: Rs. 57,\: total \: profit= Rs 100$

$If\: A's\: share \: is\: Rs 855, \: Total \: profit = \left ( 100/57 \ast 855 \right ) = Rs. 1500$
