Expert Answer:

The ratio of the polpulation of the two villages is 220: 550 = 2: 5
 
→ The share of the two villages in the donation will be 2x and 5x.
 
2x + 5x = 1260000
 
→ 7x = 1260000
→   x = 180000
 

Therefore share of each village in the donation is 2x = 2(180000) = Rs. 3,60,000 and 5x = 5(180000) = Rs. 9,00,000
