- A starts business with Rs. 4000 and after 3 months, B joins with A as his partner. After a year, the profit is divided in the ratio 16:15. What is B’s contribution in the capital?
Rs5000Rs4500Rs5500Rs4000NoneOption A

Solution:

Let B contribution is x.

(4000 * 12) /9x=16/15

x=Rs5000. - A, B and C enter into a partnership. A invests some amount at the beginning. B invests double the amount after 6 months and C invests thrice the amount invested by A after 8 months. They earn a profit of Rs. 36000 at the end of the year. What is Bâ€™s share in the profit?
Rs15000Rs14500Rs12000Rs13000NoneOption C

Solution:

Let the amount invested by A is x.

Then ratio x*12 : 2x*6 :3x*4

=12x:12x:12x

=1:1:1.

3—–36000

1—-?==> Rs12000. - A, B, C rent a pasture. A puts 15 oxen for 6 months, B puts 12 oxen for 5 months and C puts 10 oxen for 8 months for grazing. If the rent of the pasture is Rs. 345, how much must B pay as his share of rent?
Rs130Rs125Rs160Rs90NoneOption D

Solution:

A : B : C = 15 * 6 : 12 * 5 : 10 * 8

= 9:6:8.

Then

23—-345

6—–? ==> Rs90. - A, B and C started a business with their investment in the ratio 1 : 3 : 5. After 4 months, A invested the same amount as before and B as well as C withdrew half of their investments. The ratio of their profits at the end of the year was
3:5:95:6:105:8:118:6:9NoneOption B

Solution:

Ratio (x*4 +2x*8) : (3x*4 +3x/2*8) : (5x*4 +5x/2*8)

=(4x+16x) : (12x+12x) : (20x+20x)

=20x : 24x: 40x

=5:6:10. - In a business, A and C invested amounts in the ratio 1 : 2 , whereas the ratio between amounts invested by A and B was 2 : 3 . If Rs 171000 was their profit, how much amount did C receive?
Rs76000Rs65000Rs82000Rs70000NoneOption A

Solution:

A:C=1:2

A:B=2:3

Then A:B:C=2:3:4.

9—–171000

4——? ==> Rs76000. - 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 gaining ratio.
7:86:57:56:8NoneOption A

Solution:

Ratio (3/5 â€“ 4/9) : (2/5 â€“ 2/9)

=(27-20)/45 : (18-10)/45

=7:8. - Thomas and Mosses enters into a partnership with their capitals in the ratio 10 :7. At the end of 7 months, Thomas withdraws his capital. If they receive their shares profits in the ratio 2 : 1, find out how long Mossesâ€™s capital was invested in the business?
8 months6 months5 months9 monthsNoneOption C

Solution:

Ratio 10x*7 : 7x*y =2:1

(10x*7x)/(7x*y) =2/1

y=5 month. - A, B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio 5/2 : 4/3 : 8/5 . After 4 months, A increases his share 20%. If the total profit at the end of one year be Rs. 15,570, then B’s share in the profit is:
Rs4300Rs4900Rs5300Rs3600NoneOption D

Solution:

Ratio of the investment initially 5/2 : 4/3: 8/5

=75:40:48

Then New ratio

=(75*4 + 120% of 75 *8 ) : 40*12 : 48*12

=1020: 40*12 : 48*12

=255: 120: 144

519—-15570

120—–? ==> Rs3600. - Three men A, B and C start a business together. They invest Rs. 20000, Rs. 24000 and Rs. 30000, respectively in the beginning. After 5 months, B took out Rs. 4000 and C took out of Rs. 10000. They get a profit of Rs. 15180 at the end of the year. Bâ€™s share in the profit is
Rs4650Rs5720Rs4820Rs5260NoneOption B

Solution:

Ratio (20000*12) : (24000*5 + 20000*7) : (30000*5 + 20000*7)

20000*12 : 260000 : 290000

24: 26 : 29.

69——15180

26——? ==> Rs5720. - A and B are partners in a business. A contributes 2/3of the capital for 15 months and B received 2/7 of the profit. Find for how long Bâ€™s money was invested in the business?
10months12months8months14monthsNoneOption B

Solution:

Aâ€™s investment =2/3*15

Then Bâ€™s investment=1/3 *x.

Bâ€™s profit=2/7

Then Aâ€™s profit 5/7

Profit ratio 5:2.

(2/3* 15) / (1/3*x) = 5/2

x=12month.
