Two partners investede Rs. 1250 and Rs. 850 respectively in a business. They distributed 60% of the profit equally and decide to distribute the remaining 40% as the ratio of their capitals. If one partner received Rs. 30 more than the other, find the total profit?

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

If 4 (A's capital) = 6 (B's capital) = 10 (C's capital), then out of a profit of Rs. 4650, C will receive ____

A) Rs.700 | B) Rs.800 |

C) Rs.900 | D) Rs.1000 |

Explanation:

Let 4A = 6B = 1OC = k. Then, A = k/4, B = k/6, and C =k/10 .

A : B :C = k/4 : k/6 : k/10 = 15 : 10 : 6.

Hence, C's share (4650 * 6/31) = Rs, 900.

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.
