Q:

A,B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio  $\inline \fn_jvn \small \frac{7}{2}:\frac{4}{3}:\frac{6}{5}$. After 4 months, A increases his share by 50%. If the total profit at the end of one year be Rs. 21600, then B's share in the profit is :

 A) Rs. 4000 B) Rs. 6000 C) Rs. 9000 D) Rs. 3000

Explanation:

Given ratio of initial investments = $\inline&space;\frac{7}{2}&space;:&space;\frac{4}{3}&space;:&space;\frac{6}{5}$ = 105 : 40 : 36.

Let the initial investments be 105x, 40x and 36x.

$\inline&space;\therefore&space;A&space;:&space;B&space;:&space;C$ = $\inline \fn_jvn \small \left ( 105x\times 4+\frac{150}{100}\times 105x\times 8 \right ):\left ( 40x\times 12 \right ):\left ( 36x\times 12 \right )$

= 1680x : 480x : 432x = 35 : 10 : 9.

Hence, B's share = $\inline \fn_jvn \small Rs.\left ( 21600\times \frac{10}{54} \right )$ = Rs. 4000.

Q:

$\inline \fn_jvn \left ( 31 \right )^{31}\times \left ( 31 \right )^{-27}$ = ?

 A) 961 x 861 B) 961 x 961 C) 961 x 2 D) 29791

Explanation:

We know that $\inline \fn_jvn \small \left ( a \right )^{m}\times \left ( a \right )^{n}=\left ( a \right )^{m+n}$

$\inline&space;\therefore(31)&space;^{31-27}$ = $31^{4}$ = 961 x 961.
