Ratio \: of \: initial\: investments = 1/3 : 1/4 : 1/5 = 20 : 15 : 12

Let \: their \: initial\: investments\: be\: 20x,\: 15x\: and\: 12x

A : B : C = \left ( 20x\ast 4 + 10x\ast 8 \right ) : \left ( 15x\ast 12 \right ) : \left ( 12x\ast 12 \right )

                     = 40 : 45 : 36

Hence\: A's \: share = 847\ast 40/121= Rs. 280
