# Quantitative Aptitude: Partnership Set 18

1. Akash, Brijesh and Ceom enter into a partnership and their shares are in ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4, after 2 months, Akash withdraws half of his capital and after 12 months, a profit of Rs 1050 is divided among them. What is Brijesh’s share ?
Rs 400
Rs 450
Rs 500
Rs 550
None of these
Option A
Ratio of investments =1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 , LCM of 2, 3, 4 = 12 ,
multiply ratios with 12 we get 6 : 4 : 3 , so,initial investment be 6x, 2x and 3x.
=(6x X 2 + 3x X 10 ) : (4x X 12) :(3x X 12) = 7:8:6
Brijesh’s share= (8/21) x 1050 = Rs 400

2. P started a business with Rs. 21,000 and is joined afterwards by Q with Rs. 36,000. After how many months did Q join if the profits at the end of the year are divided equally?
4 months
5 months
3 months
7 months
None of these
Option B
Let B joined after x months
Then, 21000 x 12 = 36000 x (12 – x)36 = 180x = 5
Hence, B joined after 5 months

3. A and B are partners in a business. A contributes 1 / 4 of the capital for 15 months and B received 2 / 3 of the profit, for how long B’s money was used ?
9 months
11 months
10 months
8 months
None of these
Option C
Let total profit is x.
Then B’s share in profit= (2/3)x
so A’s share in profit= x- (2/3)x =x/3
so,we get ratios of profit of A :B :: 1:2
Let total capital invested be Rs P and A’s money was used for 15 months while B’s money was used for b months .
then, (1/4)P X 15 divide by (3/4)P x b = 1/2 [ Capital x time =profit]so,we get b=10
B’s money was used for 10 months

4. In a business Priyanka and Riya invested amounts in the ratio 2 :1, whereas the ratio between amounts invested by Priyanka and Quetzal was 3 : 2 . If Rs. 2,236 was their profit, how much amount did Quetzal receive ?
Rs 666
Rs 652
Rs 688
Rs 672
Rs 676
Option C
Priyanka : Quetzal = 3 : 2 , Priyanka : Riya = 2 : 1 [given]Quetzal : Priyanka = 2 : 3 [reverse], Quetzal : Priyanka = 4 : 6 [multiply by 2]Now, Priyanka : Riya = 2 : 1
Priyanka : Riya = 6 : 3 [multiply by 3]Priyanka : Quetzal =6 : 4 [after x3], So Quetzal : Priyanka : Riya = 4 : 6 : 3
or, Priyanka : Quetzal: Riya = 6 : 4 : 3
Quetzal’s share= 4/13 x 2236=Rs.688

5. A and B started a partnership business investing some amount in the ratio of 3:5. C joined them 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?
2:5:7
8:11:15
6:10:5
Cannot be determined
None of these
Option C
Let the initial investments of A and B be 3a amd 5a.
A : B : C = (3a x 12) : (5a x 12) : (5a x 6) = 36 : 60 : 30 = 6 : 10 : 5.

6. Akash, Brijesh and Caryl jointly start a business venture with a agreement that Akash would invest Rs. 13,000 for 6 months, Brijesh, Rs. 16,800 for 5 months and Caryl, Rs. 20,000 for 3 months.

Rs 5320
Rs 4840
Rs 4500
Rs 4750
None of these
Option A
Akash receives = 5% of Rs. 14800 = Rs. 740.
Balance = Rs. (14800 – 740) = Rs. 14060
Ratio of their investments = (13000 x 6) : (16,800 x 5) : (20000 x 3) = 78000 : 84000 : 60000 = 13 : 14 : 10
Brijesh’s share = Rs.14060 x 14/37 = Rs 5320

7. A,B and C invested Rs. 16000, Rs. 8000 and Rs. 16000 respectively to open a business. A left after 6 months. If after 8 months, there was a gain of Rs. 8010, then what will be the share of B?

Option C

8. P,Q and R enter into a partnership with P’s contribution Rs. 20,000. If out of a total profit of Rs. 2000, P gets Rs.100 and Q gets Rs. 600, R gets Rs 400 then R’s capital is which of the following?
Rs 4000
Rs 5500
Rs 7500
Rs 8000
None of these
Option D
P:Q:R = 1000 : 600 : 400 = 5 : 3 : 2.
Let their capitals be 5x, 3x, 2x respectively.
Then, 5x = 20000 x =Rs 4000.
R’s capital = 2x = Rs. 8000.
