## Partnership Questions

201. Vinay started a business investing Rs. 50000. After one year he invested another Rs. 80000 and Aditya also joined him with a capital of Rs. 70000. If the profit earned in three years from the starting of business was Rs. 87500, find the share of Aditya in the profit.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 35,000

Explanation:

Ratio of Vinay and Aditya for one Month
= (50000 x 12) + (80000 x 24) : 70000 x 24
= 600000 + 1920000 : 1680000 = 3:2

Hence, share of Aditya in the profit earned from the business = 87500 x 2/ 5 = Rs. 35000

Hence, share of Aditya in the profit earned from the business = 87500 x 2/ 5 = Rs. 35000

202. Three friends A, B and C started a business by investing a sum of money in the ratio 5:7:6. After 6 months C withdraws half of his capital. If the sum invested by 'A' is Rs. 40000, out of total annual profit of 33000. C's share will be

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 9000

Explanation:

Sum invested by A, B and C is
5 x 12 : 7 x 12 : 6 x 6 + 3 x 6 = 60 : 84 : 54 or = 10 : 14 : 9
Therefore Share of C = 9/33 x 33000 = Rs. 9000

Workspace

203. Mr. Saxena started a business investing Rs. 5000. Four months later Mr. Jain joined the business by investing Rs. 9000. If the profit at the end of the year was Rs. 22000, how much amount would Mr. Jain have received as the profit?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 12000

Explanation:

Ratio of their investment = 50000 x 12 : 90000 x 8 = 5 : 6

Amount Received by Jain = 6/11 x 22000 = Rs. 12000

Amount Received by Jain = 6/11 x 22000 = Rs. 12000

204. A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3 : 2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A's share is Rs. 855, the total profit is:

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 1500

Explanation:

Let the total profit be Rs. 100.
After paying to charity, A's share = Rs. ( 95 x 3/5 ) = Rs. 57.
If A's share is Rs. 57, total profit = Rs. 100.
If A's share Rs. 855, total profit = ( 100 / 57 x 855 ) = 1500

Workspace

205. Three friends A, B and C started a business by investing a sum of money in the ratio 5:7:6. After 6 months C withdraws half of his capital. If the sum invested by 'A' is Rs. 40000, out of total annual profit of 33000. C's share will be

Sum invested by A, B and C is
5 x 12 : 7 x 12 : 6 x 6 + 3 x 6 = 60 : 84 : 54 or = 10 : 14 : 9
Therefore Share of C = 9/33 x 33000 = Rs. 9000

Workspace

206. A, B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio 7/2 : 4/3 : 6/5 . After 4 months, A increases his share 50%. If the total profit at the end of one year be Rs. 21,600, then B's share in the profit is:

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 4000

Explanation:

Ratio of initial investments = ( 7/2 : 4/3 : 6/5) = 105 : 40 : 36.
Let the initial investments be 105x, 40x and 36x.
Therefore, A : B : C = ( 105x * 4 + 150/100 x 105x * 8) : (40x * 12) : (36x * 12)
= 1680x : 480x : 432x
= 35 : 10 : 9.

Hence, B's share = Rs. ( 21600 x 10/54 ) = Rs. 4000.

Hence, B's share = Rs. ( 21600 x 10/54 ) = Rs. 4000.

208. Three partners shared the profit in a business in the ratio 5 : 7 : 8. They had partnered for 14 months, 8 months and 7 months respectively. What was the ratio of their investments?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:0.868101852

Explanation:

Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively.

Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8. Now, 14x / 8y = 5/7 => 98x = 40y => y = (49/20)x

And, 14x / 7z = 5/8 => 112x = 35z => z = (112 / 35)x = (16/ 5) x .

x : y : z = x : 49/20 x : 16/5x = 20 : 49 : 64.

Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8. Now, 14x / 8y = 5/7 => 98x = 40y => y = (49/20)x

And, 14x / 7z = 5/8 => 112x = 35z => z = (112 / 35)x = (16/ 5) x .

x : y : z = x : 49/20 x : 16/5x = 20 : 49 : 64.

Workspace

209. X and Y start a business. X invests Rs. 3000 for 4 months and Y invests Rs. 2000 for 6 months. How much should X be paid out of a total profit of Rs. 500?

Explanation:

The ratio in which X and Y should be paid the profit out of Rs. 500.
= 3000 x 4 : 2000 X 6 = 12:12 =1:1

Therefore, each of X and Y should be paid Rs. 250.

Therefore, each of X and Y should be paid Rs. 250.

Explanation:

211. Rs 120 are divided among X, Y and Z so that X's share is Rs 20 more than Y's share and Rs. 20 less than Z's share. What is Y's share?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 20

Explanation:

Given, X + Y + Z = 120 ----> ()
X = Y + 20 -----> (2)
X = Z – 20 -----> (3)

Subs (2) and (3) in (1), we get, => Y + 20 + Y + X + 20 = 120 => X + 2Y = 80 => Y + 20 + 2Y = 80 => 3Y = 60 => Y = 20

Subs (2) and (3) in (1), we get, => Y + 20 + Y + X + 20 = 120 => X + 2Y = 80 => Y + 20 + 2Y = 80 => 3Y = 60 => Y = 20

212. Simran started a software business by investing Rs. 50,000. After six months, Nanda joined her with a capital of Rs. 80,000. After 3 years, they earned a profit of Rs. 24,500. What was Simran's share in the profit?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 10,500

Explanation:

Simran : Nanda = (50000 x 36) : (80000 x 30) = 3 : 4.
Therefore, Simran's share = Rs. (24500 x 3/7 ) = Rs. 10,500.

Workspace

213. A and B enter into a partnership with Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 60,000, respectively. C joins them after x months contributing 70,000 and B leaves x months before the end of the year. If they share the profit in the ratio of 20:18:21, then find the value of x.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:3

Explanation:

Let B leaves x months before the end of the year. Therefore B stays for (12 - x) months.

C joins after x months. C also remains for (12 - x) months.

Profits are shared among A, B and C in the ratio. 50000 x 12 : 60000 (12 -x) : 70000 (12 -x) = 20:18:21 (Given)

=> 60 / (6(12-x)) = 20/18, solving we get x = 3

C joins after x months. C also remains for (12 - x) months.

Profits are shared among A, B and C in the ratio. 50000 x 12 : 60000 (12 -x) : 70000 (12 -x) = 20:18:21 (Given)

=> 60 / (6(12-x)) = 20/18, solving we get x = 3

214. A, B, C rent a pasture. A puts 10 oxen for 7 months, B puts 12 oxen for 5 months and C puts 15 oxen for 3 months for grazing. If the rent of the pasture is Rs. 175, how much must C pay as his share of rent ?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:Rs. 45

Explanation:

A : B : C = (10 x 7) : (12 x 5) : (15 x 3)

= 70 : 60 : 45 = 14 : 12 : 9.

C's rent = Rs. ( 175 x 9/35) =

= 70 : 60 : 45 = 14 : 12 : 9.

C's rent = Rs. ( 175 x 9/35) =

**Rs. 45.**

215. A and B are two partners in a business, A contributes Rs. 1200 for 5 months and B Rs. 750 for 4 months. If the total profit is Rs. 900, find their respective shares. ?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:600,300

Explanation:

A invested 1200 Rs for 5 months and B invested Rs. 750 for 4 months, here the time also comes into factor.

The ratio should be in proportion to the product of the principal and time they have invested

1200 x 5 : 750 x 4 = 6000 : 3000 = 2:1

The profit received is Rs. 900

A’s Share = 2/3 x 900 = 600

B’s share = 1/3 x 900 = 300

The ratio should be in proportion to the product of the principal and time they have invested

1200 x 5 : 750 x 4 = 6000 : 3000 = 2:1

The profit received is Rs. 900

A’s Share = 2/3 x 900 = 600

B’s share = 1/3 x 900 = 300

Profit Share of A = 250

= Ratio of their investments

= 2500 : 5500 = 25 : 55

= 5:11

Profit share of A = 5/(5+11) x 800 = (5/16) x 800 = 250

Profit Share of A = 250
