Q:

In a business, A and C invested amounts in the ratio 2:1, whereas the ratio between amounts invested by A and B was 3:2. If Rs. 1,57,300 was their profit, how much amount did B receive ?

A) 48400 B) 54200
C) 64000 D) 74000

Answer:   A) 48400



Explanation:

A : B = 3 : 2 => B : A = 2 : 3 = 4 : 6 and A : C = 2 : 1 = 6 : 3.

So, B : A : C = 4 : 6 : 3 or A : B : C = 6 : 4 : 3.

B's share = Rs. (157300 x 4/13 ) = Rs. 48400.

Q:

Rushi and Arun are two business partners. They invest their capital in the ratio 7 : 9. After 6 months, a third person Ram joins them with a capital of two third of that of Arun. After a year, profit share of Rushi was Rs. 5600, then find total profit?

A) 26,250 B) 19,200
C) 18,650, D) 15,200
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 15,200

Explanation:

Ratio of investment of all the three members = (7 x 12) : (9 x 12) : (2/3 x 9 x 6)

= 7 : 9 : 3

Given Rushi's one year profit = Rs. 5600

=> Let the total profit = Rs. P

Then,

P x 7/19 = 5600

Total profit P = 19 x 5600/7 = Rs. 15,200.

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
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 5000

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)

=> 12000012p = 60003000 => p= Rs. 5000

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

Q:

A sum of Rs. 4,300 is distributed among M, N and O, such that M receives 25% more than N and N receives 25% less than O. What is O’s share in the amount?

A) 1564 B) 1600
C) 1632 D) 1714
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1600

Explanation:

Let O's share = Rs. P

=> N's share = 75100 x P = 3P4

M's share = 54 x 3P4 = 15P16

15P16 + 3P4 + P = 4300=> P = 4300 x 1643 = 1600

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
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 23,500

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:

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
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 38000

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
