A, B and C enter into a partnership and their shares are in the ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4. After 2 months, A withdraws half of his capital and after 10 months, a profit of Rs. 378 is divided among them. What is B's share ?

A) 144 | B) 169 |

C) 225 | D) 339 |

Explanation:

Ratio of initial investments = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6 : 4 : 3.

Let their initial investments be 6x, 2x and 3x respectively.

A : B : C = (6x * 2 + 3x * 10) : (4x * 12) : (3x * 12) = 42 : 48 : 36 = 7 : 8 : 6.

B's share = Rs. (378 * 8/21) = Rs. 144.

A and B started a business jointly A's investment was thrice the investment of B and the period of his investment was two times the period of investment of B. If B received Rs. 4000 as profit, then their total profit is :

A) 22000 | B) 28000 |

C) 32000 | D) 36000 |

Explanation:

Suppose **B** invested Rs. x for y months. Then, A invested Rs. 3x for 2y months.

So, A : B = (3x * 2y) : (x * y) = 6xy : xy = 6 : 1.

B's profit : Total profit = 1 : 7.

Let the total profit be Rs. x Then, 1/7 = 4000/x or x = 28000.

A, B, C subscribe Rs. 50,000 for a business, A Subscribes Rs. 4000 more than B and B Rs. 5000 more thanC. Out of a total profit of Rs. 35,000, A receives :

A) 14700 | B) 15000 |

C) 12000 | D) 13500 |

Explanation:

Let C = x. Then, B = x + 5000 and A = x + 5000 + 4000 = x + 9000.

So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000 <=> 3x = 36000 <=>

x = 12000.

A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12.

A's share = Rs. (35000 * 21/50 ) = Rs. 14,700.
