 # Quantitative Aptitude: Partnership Set 13

1. A and B together started a business in the ratio of 4:5 resp. Find the total profit earned in the business in 3 years, if the difference between the profit earned by A and B is Rs.480 after 3 years.
Rs.4410
Rs.4320
Rs.4240
Rs.4320
Rs.4100
Option B
Profit share ratio of A:B = 4:5
Let the profit earned by A and B be Rs.4x and Rs.5x resp.
5x-4x = 480
=> x = 480
Required total profit earned = 9x = Rs.4320

2. A and B together starts a business with a total investment of Rs.14000. After a year, both increase their investment by 20% of their respective initial investment. If after 2 years, A earns a profit of Rs.4000 out of total profit of Rs.7000. Find the inital investment of A.
Rs.6000
Rs.5000
Rs.8000
Rs.7000
Rs.9000
Option C
Let the initial investment of A be x.
Then the initial investment of B will be Rs.(14000-x)
Total investment of A = x+1.2x = 2.2x
Total investment of B = 14000 – x +1.2*(14000-x) = Rs.(30800-2.2x)
Now, 2.2x/(30800-2.2x+2.2x) = 4000/7000
=> x = 8000
So, the initial investment of A = Rs.8000

3. A,B and C started a business with initial investments of Rs.3000, Rs.3200 and Rs.3500 resp. After one year, A,B and C made additional investments of Rs.(x+150), Rs.(x+300) and Rs.(x+250) resp. Find the profit share of B out of the total profit of Rs.4320 after two years.
Rs.1570
Rs.1440
Rs.1320
Rs.1520
Rs.1440
Option B
Respective ratio of the profits of A,B and C
= 3000+3000+x+150:3200+3200+x+300:3500+3500+x+250
= 6150+x:6700+x:7250+x
Profit share of B = (6700+x)/3*(20100+3x)*4320 = Rs.1440

4. A,B and C started a business with inital investments in the ratio 4:5:7 resp. After one year A,B and C made additional investments in the ratio 2:3:3 resp. Find the profit share of A out of Rs.4800 after two years.
Rs.1200
Rs.1400
Rs.1000
Rs.800
Rs.1600
Option A
Let initial investments of A,B and C are Rs.4x, Rs.5x and Rs.7x resp.
Let the additional investments of A,B and C are Rs.2y, Rs.3y and Rs.3y resp.
Ratio of their profits = 4x+4x+2y : 5x+5x+3y : 7x+7x+3y
Profit share of A = (8x+2y)/(32y+8y)*4800 = Rs.1200

5. A and B together started a business with investment of Rs.(x+300) and Rs.(2x+100) resp. After one year of starting the business, C joined him with investment of Rs.(x+800). At the end of two years, if C received Rs.3000 out of total profit of Rs.13500. Find the value of x.
700
600
500
600
800
Option E
Total investment of A = x+300+x+300 = Rs.(2x+600)
Total investment of B = 2x+100+2x+100 = Rs.(4x+200)
Total investment of C = Rs.(x+800)
Now, {(x+800)/(7x+1600)} = 3000/13500
=> x = 800

6. A and B together started a business with initial investments of Rs.1200 and Rs.1500 resp. After 6 months, A invested an additional investment equal to half his initial investments and B withdrew 20% of his investments. Find the profit share of A out of the total profit of Rs.7980 after one year.
Rs.3300
Rs.3500
Rs.3700
Rs.4200
Rs.4000
Option D
Additional investment of A after 6 months
= 1200/2 = Rs.600
Investment of A for the last 6 months = 1200 + 600 = Rs.1800
Investment of B for the last 6 months = 1500 – 0.20*1500 = Rs.1200
Ratio of investment of A: B = 1200*6+1800*6 : 1500*6+1200*6 = 10:9
Profit share of A = 7980*10/19 = Rs.4200

7. A and B together started a business with ratio of their investments as 5:4 resp. After 4 months, C joined with an investment which is 25% more than the investment of B. If after a year, they received a total profit of Rs.1110. Find the profit share of B.
Rs.280
Rs.360
Rs.320
Rs.300
Rs.220
Option B
Let the initial investment of A and B be Rs.5x and Rs.4x resp.
Initial investment of C = 4x*1.25 = Rs.5x
Ratio of profit share of A:B:C = (5x*12): (4x*12): (5x*8) = 15:12:10
Profit share of B = 12/(15+12+10)*1110 = Rs.360

8. A and B started a business in partnership with investment of Rs.2400 and Rs.3200 resp. After one year, A increased his investment by 15% while B decreased his investment by 20%. At the end of 2 years, they earned a profit of Rs.5460. Find the profit of A.
Rs.2790
Rs.2580
Rs.2550
Rs.2620
Rs.2200
Option B
Total investment of A = 2400+1.15*2400
= Rs.5160
Total investment of B = 3200+0.8*3200 = Rs.5760
Ratio of investment of A and B = 5160:5760 = 43:48
Profit of A = 43/91*5460 = Rs.2580

9. A and B together started a firm with an investment of Rs.30,000 and Rs.50,000 resp. After completion of one year, A increased his investment by 20% while B decreased his investment by 14%. If at the end of second year, total profit earned by them was Rs.47700. Find the share of B.
Rs.24400
Rs.22000
Rs.27900
Rs.26500
Rs.21300
Option C
Total investment of A = 30000+1.2*30000 = Rs.66000
Total investment of B = 50000+0.86*50000 = Rs.93000
Ratio = 22:31
Profit share of B = 31/53*47700 = Rs.27900

10. A and B started a business together with an investment of Rs.(1600+x) and Rs.(800+3x). After a year B received a profit of Rs.3200 out of total profit of Rs.5600. What is the initial investment of A?
Rs.1800
Rs.1400
Rs.1600
Rs.1000
Rs.1700
Option A
A:B = (1600+x): (1800+3x) (1600+x): (1800+3x)
= (5600-3200): 3200
=> x = 200
Investment of A = 1600+200 = Rs.1800

Thanks for your posting. I also think laptop computers have become more and more popular today, and now in many cases are the only sort of computer utilized in a household. The reason is that at the same time they are becoming more and more inexpensive, their working power is growing to the point where they can be as potent as pc’s out of just a few in years past.
