Q:

A, B and C started a business where their initial capital was in the ratio of 2:3:4. At the end of 6 months, A invested an amount such that his total capital became equal to C's initial capital investment. If the annual profit of B is Rs. 3000 then what is the total profit  ? 

A) Rs. 8,640 B) Rs. 9,850
C) Rs. 10,000 D) Rs. 11,220

Answer:   C) Rs. 10,000



Explanation:

Ratio of investments of A, B & C = 2×6+4×6 : 3×12 : 4×12

= 36 : 36 : 48

= 6 : 6 : 8

But given that the annual profit of B is Rs. 3000

=> 6 ratio = 3000

Then for the total annual profit of partners is

20 ratio = 3000 x 20/6 = 10,000.

Q:

Rohith started a business by investing Rs. 3600. After somedays, Puneeth joined him by investing Rs. 2400. At the end of one year, the profit was divided in the ratio 2 : 1. After how many months did Puneeth join the business?

A) 2 months B) 2.5 months
C) 3 months D) 3.5 months

Q:

Dileep started a business with a capital of Rs. 8000. After six months, Narender joined him with some investment. If at the end of the year each of them gets equal amount as profit, how much did Narender invest in the business?

A) 24000 B) 16000
C) 12000 D) 32000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 16000

Explanation:

Given Dileep and Narender started a business.

Dileep invested 8000 for 12 months

Let Narender invested 'p' for 6 months

At the end of the year, their profit ratio is 1 : 1.

Hence,

8000 x 12 : p x 6

p : 16000

p/16000 = 1/1

=> p = 16,000

 

Hence, Narender invested amount is Rs. 16,000.

Q:

Rs. 2018 are to be divided among P, Q and R in such a way that if P gets Rs. 5 then Q must get Rs. 12 and if Q gets Rs. 4 then R must get Rs. 5.50. The share of R will exceed that of Q by

A) Rs. 127 B) Rs. 271
C) Rs. 721 D) Rs. 217
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Rs. 271

Explanation:

ATQ,

P : Q = 5 : 12 = 10 : 24

Q : R = 4 : 5.5 = 24 : 33

P:Q:R = 10 : 24 : 33

Sum of the ratios = 10 + 24 + 33 = 67

Difference between the share of R & Q

= (33-24/67 x 2018)

= 9/67 x 2018

= Rs. 271.

Q:

Rushi and Arun are two business partners. They invest their capital in the ratio 7 : 9. After 6 months, a third person Ram joins them with a capital of two third of that of Arun. After a year, profit share of Rushi was Rs. 5600, then find total profit?

A) 26,250 B) 19,200
C) 18,650, D) 15,200
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 15,200

Explanation:

Ratio of investment of all the three members = (7 x 12) : (9 x 12) : (2/3 x 9 x 6)

= 7 : 9 : 3

Given Rushi's one year profit = Rs. 5600

=> Let the total profit = Rs. P

Then,

P x 7/19 = 5600

Total profit P = 19 x 5600/7 = Rs. 15,200.

Q:

Sandeep got Rs. 6000 as his share out of the total profit of Rs. 9000 which he and Saketh earned at the end of one year. If Sandeep invested Rs. 20000 for 6 months, whereas Saketh invested his amount for the whole year, the amount invested by Saketh?

A) Rs. 5000 B) Rs. 6200
C) Rs. 8100 D) R. 7600
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 5000

Explanation:

Let the amount invested by saketh = RS. p

Now, that of sandeep = 20,000 x 6

saketh = 12 x p

Ratio of their earnings = 120000 : 12p = 6000 : (9000 - 6000)

=> 12000012p = 60003000 => p= Rs. 5000

Hence, the amount investe by saketh  = Rs. p  = Rs. 5000.
