Q:

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

Answer:   A) 144



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.

Q:

Two partners invest Rs 12500 and Rs 8500 respectively in a business and agree that 60% of the profit should be divided equally between them and the remaining profit is to be treated as interest on capital. If one partner gets Rs 240 more than the other, find the total profit made in the business.

A) 3250 B) 4050
C) 3550 D) 3150
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 3150

Explanation:
Clearly, If 60 % is equally divided then remaining 40% of total profit will be divided between 2 persons A and B in ratio of (profit of A) : (profit of B)= 12,500 : 8500 = 125 : 85 = 25:17 now difference in amount = 25-17 = 8 this difference = 240 therefore 40% of total profit = 240*(25+17)/(25-17) = 1260 ∴ 100% profit = 1260 / 40 × 100 = 3150
