4500
4450

Profit sharing ration of A , b and C = (4200 *12) : (5400 * 7) : (6000 * 7) = 12 : 9 : 10
total profit = 15500
profit share of B = 15500 * 9/31 = 4500

5 : 2 : 3
2 : 3 : 8
14 : 12 : 21

3450
1400
2000
1250
600
Option D
Let total profit of the business = 5x
profit share of A = 5x * 3/5 = 3x
remaining profit = 2x
profit share of B and C = x and x respectively
3x – x = 500
x = 250
total profit of the business = 5x = 5 * 250 = 1250

4. Three partners A , B and C started a business with investing rs.4000, rs.6500 and rs.5500 respectively.

= 29 : 36 : 34
profit share of A = 19800 * 29/99 = 5800

Hari invests = x – 1600
Shiva invests = x – 1600 + x +3200
total profit = 15000
x + x – 1600 + x + 600 = 15000
Ram invests = 5000
Hari invests = 5000 – 1600 = 3400
Shiva invests = 3400 + 3200 = 6600
their profit sharing ratio = 5000 : 3400 : 6600
profit share of Shiva = 4500 * 33/75 = 1980

profit share of A = 88x
profit share of A = 88x * 5/11 = 40x
profit share of B = 88x * 6 / 11 = 48x
A got in all = 744
