# Quantitative Aptitude: Partnership Set 10

1. A and B enters into a partnership for a year. A contributes Rs. 4000 and B Rs. 3000. After 4 months, they admit C who contributes Rs. 2500. If B withdraws his contribution after 8 months, at the end of the year they share profit in the ratio
12:6:5
10:9:5
9:5:4
13:11:8
None
Option A
Solution:
Profit= investment* month.
Then profit ratio
A:B:C = 4000*12 : 3000*8 : 2500*8
12:6:5.
2. A and B enter into partnership. A supplies whole of the capital amounting R.s 45000 with the condition that the profits are to be equally divided and that B pays A interest on half the capital at 10% per annum. But B receives Rs 120 per month for carrying on the concern. If income of B is half the income of A, what is the total yearly profit ?
Rs9240
Rs8850
Rs8520
Rs9180
None
Option D
Solution:
Amount Paid to B as Salary = 120 *12 = Rs. 1440.
Interest paid by B = (22500 *10)/100 = Rs. 2250.
Let total profit be 2x+1440
Then A and B get x as share.
A’s income=x+2250
B’s income=x+1440-2250=x-810
2(x−810)=x+2250
x=3870
Then total yearly profit=2*3870+1440=Rs9180.
3. A, B and C invest in a partnership in the ratio 5/4, 3/2, 4/3. After 6 months, A increases his share 50%. If the total profit at the end of one year is Rs.22,155 then what is B’s share in the profit?
Rs6850
Rs7560
Rs7235
Rs7430
None
Option B
Solution:
Ratio 5/4:3/2:4/3=15:18:16
Then their investment (15x*6) + (15x*150/100*6) : 18x*12 : 16x*12
225x: 18x*12 : 16x*12
75:72:64
Total 211……….. 22155
………… 72 ……….. ?==> Rs7560.
4. A, B and C are partners of a company. During a particular year A received 1/4 of the profit, B received 2/3 of the profit and C received remaining Rs. 3000. How much did B receive?
Rs22,000
Rs20,000
Rs24,000
Rs18,000
None
Option C
Solution:
Profit earned by c=1-(1/4+2/3)=1-11/12=1/12.
1………….3000
12………….. ?==>36000.
Then B receives 2/3*36000=Rs24,000.
5. A, B, C invest Rs. 94,000 for a business. If A invest Rs. 3000 more than B and B Rs. 8000 more than C, out of a total profit of Rs. 28,200, what will be the amount A receives?
Rs 10800
Rs9945
Rs10250
Rs9655
None
Option A
Solution:
Let C investment be x
B=x+8000
A=x+11000
X+11000 : x+8000 😡
Total=94,000
X+11000+x+8000+x=94000
X=25000.
A:B:C=36000: 33000: 25000=36:33:25
94…………….. 28200
36………….. ?==>Rs 10800.
6. A received Rs. 6000 as his share out of the total profit of Rs. 9000 which he and B earned at the end of one year. If A invested Rs.120000 for 6 months, whereas B invested his amount for the whole year, what was the amount invested by B?
Rs5400
Rs4650
Rs5800
Rs5000
None
Option D
Solution:
If B invested Rs. x.
Then, A : B = 20000 * 6 : x * 12.
120000/12x : 6000/3000
x = 120000/24 = Rs5000.
7. An amount of money is to be divided among A, B and C in the ratio 4 : 5 : 6, respectively. If the amount received by C is Rs. 3,000 more than the amount received by B, what will be the total amount received by A and B together?
Rs26500
Rs22000
Rs27000
Rs24000
None
Option C
Solution:
Ratio 4:5:6
Difference (C-B) 1…….. 3000
…….. ……. 9(A+B) …… ? ==>Rs27000.
8. P and Q enters into a partnership with their capitals in the ratio 5 : 8. At the end of 8 months, P withdraws his capital. If they receive their shares profits in the ratio 1 : 2, find out how long Q’s capital was invested in the business?
10month
8month
12month
6month
None
Option A
Solution:
P:Q=5*8 : 8*x
Profit ratio 1:2
(5*8)/(8x)= 1/2
x=10month.
9. X, Y and Z were sharing profits in the ratio 4 : 3 : 2. Y retired from the firm and X and Z decide to share profits in the ratio 3 : 2. Calculate the Profit ratio.
8:9
5:6
7:8
7:6
None
Option C
Solution:
Profit ratio (3/5-4/9) : (2/5-2/9)
=(27-20)/45 : (18-10)/45
=7/45: 8/45
=7:8.
10. A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3 : 5. C joined then after six months with an amount equal to that of B. In what proportion should the profit at the end of one year be distributed among A, B and C?
11:6:8
8:4:5
6 : 10 : 5
5:8:7
None
Option C
Solution:
Let investment A is 3x and B is 5x, then C investment is also 5x.
A : B : C = (3x * 12) : (5x * 12) : (5x * 6)
= 36 : 60 : 30
= 6 : 10 : 5.
