A and B are partners in a business. A contributes 1/4 of the capital for 15 months and B received 2/3 of the profit. For how long B's money was used ?

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.
