Q:

# A and B started a business jointly A's investment was thrice the investment of B and the period of his investment was two times the period of investment of B. If B received Rs. 4000 as profit, then their total profit is :

 A) 22000 B) 28000 C) 32000 D) 36000

Explanation:

Suppose B invested Rs. x for y months. Then, A invested Rs. 3x for 2y months.

So, A : B = (3x * 2y) : (x * y) = 6xy : xy = 6 : 1.

B's profit : Total profit  = 1 : 7.

Let the total profit be Rs. x Then,  1/7 = 4000/x  or x = 28000.

Q:

Sandeep got Rs. 6000 as his share out of the total profit of Rs. 9000 which he and Saketh earned at the end of one year. If Sandeep invested Rs. 20000 for 6 months, whereas Saketh invested his amount for the whole year, the amount invested by Saketh?

 A) Rs. 5000 B) Rs. 6200 C) Rs. 8100 D) R. 7600

Explanation:

Let the amount invested by saketh = RS. p

Now, that of sandeep = 20,000 x 6

saketh = 12 x p

Ratio of their earnings = 120000 : 12p = 6000 : (9000 - 6000)

=>

Hence, the amount investe by saketh  = Rs. p  = Rs. 5000.

Q:

A & B invest Rs. 1,16,000 & 1,44,000 respectively. B invests for 6 months. At the end of the year, B’s share is Rs. 9000, find the overall profit?

 A) Rs. 23,500 B) Rs. 19,780 C) Rs. 21,700 D) Rs. 20,050

Explanation:

Given A & B in partnership

A Invests 116000 for 12 months

=> A's share = 116000 x 12 = 13,92,000

B Invests for 6 months

=> B's share = 144000 x 6 = 8,64,000

Their Ratio = 1392 : 864 = 29 : 18

Let the Annual profit = P

Given B's share = Rs. 9000

=> 18/47 x P = 9000

=> P = 9000 x 47/18

=> P = 23,500

Hence, Overall profit = P = Rs. 23,500

Q:

A certain amount is divided among P, Q and R in the ratio of 3 : 7 : 6 respectively. If the difference between share of P and Q is Rs. 2700, what is R's share?

 A) Rs. 4050 B) Rs. 2121 C) Rs. 5040 D) Rs. 3550

Explanation:

Let the ratio amount be 'p'

7p - 3p = 2700

4p = 2700

p = 675

R's Share = 675 × 6 = Rs. 4050

Q:

A, B and C started a business where their initial capital was in the ratio of 2:3:4. At the end of 6 months, A invested an amount such that his total capital became equal to C's initial capital investment. If the annual profit of B is Rs. 3000 then what is the total profit  ?

 A) Rs. 8,640 B) Rs. 9,850 C) Rs. 10,000 D) Rs. 11,220

Explanation:

Ratio of investments of A, B & C = 2×6+4×6 : 3×12 : 4×12

= 36 : 36 : 48

= 6 : 6 : 8

But given that the annual profit of B is Rs. 3000

=> 6 ratio = 3000

Then for the total annual profit of partners is

20 ratio = 3000 x 20/6 = 10,000.

Q:

Rajeev start a business with Rs. 10000, Deepu joins him after 2 month with 20% more investment than Rajeev, after 2 month Shakti joins him with 40% less than Deepu. If the profit earned by them at the end of the year is equal to the twice of the difference between investment of Rajeev and ten times the investment of Shakti. Find the profit of Rajeev ?

 A) 50000 B) 48000 C) 38000 D) 40000

Explanation:

Here from the given information,

The ratio of investments of Rajeev, Deepu & Shakti is

R : D : S = (10000 × 12) : (12000 × 10) : (7200 × 8)

= 25 : 25 : 12

Now the Profit = 2 × (72000-10000) = 124000

Share of Rajeev = 124000 x 25/62 = 48000

Profit of Rajeev = 48000 - 10000 = 38000

Q:

Munna and Chinna are partners in a firm out of which Munna is sleeping partner and Chinna is working partner. Munna invests Rs. 1,40,000 and Chinna invests Rs. 80,000. Chinna receives 14.5% of profit for managing the business and the rest is shared between both in ratio of their investments. Munna's share in the profit of Rs. 19600 is ?

 A) Rs. 9580.25 B) Rs. 10600 C) Rs. 10664.15 D) Rs. 11060.48

Explanation:

Profit received by Chinna as working partner = 14.5% of Rs. 19600

= 14.5x19600/100 = Rs. 2842

Balance in profit = 19600-2842 = Rs. 16758

Ratio of investment of Chinna & Munna = 80,000 : 1,40,000 = 4 : 7

Hence share of Chinna in investment = 4x16758/100 = Rs. 6093.85

Therefore, Share of Munna = 19600 - 2842 - 6093.85 = Rs. 10664.15
