Q:

A, B and C started a company where their initial investments 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 B's initial capital investment. If the annual profit of B is Rs. 3000 then what is the total profit of the company ?

A) Rs. 9500 B) Rs. 10600
C) Rs. 7500 D) Rs. 8900
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 9500

Explanation:

Given initial investments ratio = 2 : 3 : 4

At the end of 6 months, A invested an amount such that his total capital became equal to B's initial capital investment

i.e, upto 6 months A's investment is 2 and after 6 months his invstment is 3 = B's investment

Now, Ratio of investment for one year

=> A : B : C = (2×6 + 3×6) : (3×12) : (4×12)

= 30 : 36 : 48

= 5 : 6 : 8

But given B's profit = 3000

=> 6 ratio = 3000

For total => 19 ratio = Rs. 9500.

Q:

Rs.1500 is divided into two parts such that if one part is invested at 6% and the other at 5% the whole annual interest from both the sum is Rs.85. How much was lent at 5% ?

A) 500 B) 600
C) 450 D) 550
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 500

Explanation:

Let the lent at 5% be 'A'

(A x 5 x 1)/100 + [(1500 - A)x 6 x 1]/100 = 85

5A/100 + 90 – 6A/100 = 85

A/100 = 5

=> A = 500
