# Partnership Questions

A) 1 : 2 : 3 | B) 3 : 4 : 15 |

C) 3 : 5 : 10 | D) 5 : 6 : 10 |

Explanation:

Let their initial investments be x, 3x and 5x respectively. Then,

20x : 24x : 40x = 5 : 6 : 10

A) 500 | B) 1000 |

C) 1500 | D) 2000 |

Explanation:

Let the total profit be Rs. 100.

After paying to charity, A's share = = Rs. 57.

A) 3 months | B) 6 months |

C) 10 months | D) 12 months |

Explanation:

Let the total profit be Rs. z. Then,

B's share = Rs. 2z/3, A's share = Rs. ( z - 2z/3 ) = Rs. z/3.

A : B = z/3 : 2z/3 = 1:2

Let the total capital be Rs, X and suppose B's money was used for x months. Then.

(1(x) / 4 * 15) / (3x) / 4 * y) = 1/2 <=> y = (15 * 2 / 3) = 10 .

Thus, B's money was used for 10 months.

A) 4 months | B) 5 months |

C) 6 months | D) 8 months |

Explanation:

Suppose B joined for x months . Then, ( 85000 * 12 )/(42500 * x) = 3. or x = (85000 * 12) / (42500 * 3) = 8.

So, B joined for 8 months.

Let the total profit be Rs.x

60% of the profit =

from this part of the profit each gets = Rs.

40% of the profit =

Now, this amount of Rs. has been divided in the ratio of capitals 1250 : 850 = 25 :17

Share on first capital =

Share on second capital =

Total money received by 1st investor =

Total money received by 2nd investor =

x = 393.75
