- 11. In a partnership, A inverts 1/12 of the capital for 1/12 of the time, B invests 1/6 of the Capital for 1/6 of the time and C, the rest of the capital for the whole time. Out of a profit of Rs 113000/-, B’s share is :

A.Rs. 40000/-

B.Rs. 4000/-

C.Rs. 14000/-

D.None of these

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option B

Explanation:**Let the total capital be Rs x and the total time be y months. Then,**

A invests Rs x/12 for x/12 months;

B invests Rs x/6 for x/6 months;

C invests Rs [x – (x/12 + x/16)] => Rs.[x – (x+12)/12]

Rs. [(12x – 3x)/12]

Rs. [9x/12]

Rs. [3x/4] for y months

Then A : B : C = [x/12 * y/12] : [x/6 * y/6] : [3x/4 * y/1]

= xy/144 : xy/36 : 3xy/4

LCM = 144, 36, 4 = 144

A : B : C = 1 : 4 : 108

B’s Share = Rs(113000 * 4/113) = Rs. 4000/-

A invests Rs x/12 for x/12 months;

B invests Rs x/6 for x/6 months;

C invests Rs [x – (x/12 + x/16)] => Rs.[x – (x+12)/12]

Rs. [(12x – 3x)/12]

Rs. [9x/12]

Rs. [3x/4] for y months

Then A : B : C = [x/12 * y/12] : [x/6 * y/6] : [3x/4 * y/1]

= xy/144 : xy/36 : 3xy/4

LCM = 144, 36, 4 = 144

A : B : C = 1 : 4 : 108

B’s Share = Rs(113000 * 4/113) = Rs. 4000/-

- 13. A and B enter into a partnership. A contributed Rs.5000 for 8 months and B Rs.6000 for 5 months. Find A's share in a total profit of rs.8400.

A.Rs. 4800

B.Rs. 2400

C.Rs. 3600

D.Rs. 5600

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option A

Explanation:**Ratio of capitals of A and B**

= Ratio of their investments

= 5000 × 8 : 6000 × 5

= 40000 : 30000 = 4 : 3

.: A's share = Rs. [(4/7) × 8400] = Rs. 4800

= Ratio of their investments

= 5000 × 8 : 6000 × 5

= 40000 : 30000 = 4 : 3

.: A's share = Rs. [(4/7) × 8400] = Rs. 4800

- 14. A, B and C started a business with investment of Rs. 8000. Rs. 20000 and Rs. 32000. What is the share of B in the total profit of Rs. 5400 at the end of 1 year?

A.Rs. 2880

B.Rs. 720

C.Rs. 1800

D.Rs. 1650

Answer & Explanation

Answer: Option C

Explanation:**Ratio of capitals of A, B and C**

= 8000 : 20000 : 32000 = 2 : 5 : 8

.: B's share = Rs. [(5/15) × 5400] = Rs. 1800

= 8000 : 20000 : 32000 = 2 : 5 : 8

.: B's share = Rs. [(5/15) × 5400] = Rs. 1800
