Given,

Total money = Rs 36 

Bhoomikas age = 12 years

Shreya's age = 15 years.

Now According to the question,

 we are dividing 36 in ratio 15 : 12.

So, the sum of number in ratio = 15 + 12 = 27 

Hence

amount of money Shreya gets:

    =\frac{15}{27}\times36

    =\frac{15}{3}\times4

    =5\times4

     =20 Rs .

Amount of money Sangeeta gets :

     =\frac{12}{27}\times36=\frac{12}{3}\times4=4\times4=16.

Hence Shreya and Sangeeta get 20 Rs and 16 Rs respectively.
