42000
34000
38000
51000
40000
Option B
Let the investment of A,B and C = 6x, 3x and 4x respectively.
profit sharing ratio of A,B and C = (6x * 1 + 3x * 1) : (3x * 1 + 6x * 1) : (4x * 2)
= 9x : 9x : 8x = 9 : 9 : 8
Total profit share of B and C = 52000 * 17/26 = 34000

2. P started a business with the investment of rs.5500. After four months Q and R joined the business with investment of rs.6000 and rs.4500 respectively. At the end of the one year they earned total profit rs.22500. Find profit share of R ?
5400
7500
5000
4850
3250
Option A
profit sharing ratio of P,Q and R = (5500 * 12) : (6000 * 8) : (4500 * 8) = 11 : 8 : 6
profit share of R = 22500 * 6/25 = 5400

3. Amit and Sumit invested rs.5000 and rs.7500 in a partnership business. After one year Amit added rs.2500 and sumit added rs.2000 in the business. If profit of Sumit at the end of two years is rs.13600, then find the total profit of the business ?

Option D
Profit sharing ratio of Amit and Sumit = (5000 * 1 + 7500 * 1) : (7500 * 1 + 9500 * 1) = 25 : 34
profit share of sumit = 13600
total profit of the business = 13600 * 59/34 = 23600

4. X,Y and Z started a business with investment ratio of 4 : 3 : 5. If they invested for 5 months, 8 months and 4 months respectively, then what is profit sharing ratio of X,Y and Z ?
4 : 2 : 5
2 : 5 : 3
10 : 9 : 5
3 : 4 : 8
5 : 6 : 5
Option E
Profit sharing ratio of X, Y and Z = (4 * 5) : (3 * 8) : (5 * 4) = 20 : 24 : 20 = 5 : 6 : 5

5. A and B investment rs.8000 and rs.6000 for 12 months and 14 months respectively in the business. If 25% of total profit is given to B as salary for managing business and remaining profit is distributed in their profit sharing ratio and profit share of A is rs.3200, then find total profit of the business ?

4800
8000
4800
Option D
Profit sharing ratio of A and B = (8000 * 12) : (6000 * 14) = 8 : 7
Let total profit of the business = 100x
salary given to B = 100x * 25/100 = 25x
remaining profit = 100x – 25x = 75x
profit share of A = 75x * 8/15 = 40x
40x = 3200
x = 80
total profit of the business = 100x = 100 * 80 = 8000

6. Lipu and Papu start a business with initial investments in the ratio of 9 : 11 and their annual profit were in the ratio of 3 : 1. If Lipu invested the money for 11 months, then Papu invested his money for how many months ?

x = 3 months

7. A , B and C enter into partnership business. A invests some money at the beginning, after 4 months B invests double the money of A’s invests and after 6 months C invests thrice the amount of A. If total profit of the business is rs.9200 at the end of one year, then how much profit B get ?
4600
2800
3400
3200
3800
Option D
Let A invests = rs.x
B invests = 2x
C invests = 3x
profit sharing ratio of A , B and C = (x * 12 ) : (2x * 8) : (3x * 6)
=6 : 8 : 9
profit share of B = 9200 * 8 /23 = 3200

8. X , Y and Z entered into a partnership farm with investing rs. 12000, rs. 18000 and rs. 20000 respectively. X being a working partner gets 20% of the annual profit for the work. Find the profit share of X in an annual profit of rs. 25000 ?
8600
7300
9800
5820
8750
Option C
Profit sharing ratio of X , Y and Z = 12000 : 18000 : 20000 = 6 : 9 : 10
X gets profit for being a working partner = 25000 * 20 /100 = 5000
remaining profit = 25000 – 5000 = 20000
profit share of X of the remaining profit = 20000 * 6 /25 = 4800
total profit of X = 5000 + 4800 = 9800

9. A and B started a business by investing rs.15000 and rs.20000 respectively. By mistake they divided the total profit in the ratio of 1 : 3, so that A loses rs.500. What is total profit of the business ?

4200
2800
5200
Option D
Profit sharing ratio of A and B = 15000 : 2000 = 3 : 4
Let total profit of the business = rs. x
profit sharing ratio of A = 3x/7
By mistake profit share of A = x/4
A losses = 500
= 12x – 7x/28
x = 500 * 28/5 = 2800
total profit of the business = rs.2800

10. A and B started a business with capital of rs.28000 and rs.35000. After 6 months, A invests rs.4000 more, after 8 months B withdrawal rs. 5000 while C joins with capital of rs.40000. Annual profit of the business is rs.9200, then how much profit A get ?

profit share of A = 9200 * 9/23 = 3600
