Q:

A, B, C and D enter into partnership. A subscribes 1/3 of the capital B 1/4, C 1/5 and D the rest. How much share did A get in a profit of Rs.2490 ?

A) Rs. 820 B) Rs. 830
C) Rs. 840 D) Rs. 850
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Rs. 830

Explanation:

Let the total amount in the partnership be 'x'.
Then A's share = x/3
B's share = x/4
C's share = x/5
D's share = x - (x/3 + x/4 +x/5) = 13x/60

A : B : C : D = x/3 : x/4 : x/5 : 13x/60 = 20 : 15 : 12 : 13

A's share in the profit of Rs. 2490 = 20 (2490/60) = Rs. 830.
