P : Q : R = (10000 Ã— 12) : (12000 Ã— 10) : (7200 Ã— 8)
= 25 : 25 : 12
Now the Profit = 2 Ã— (72000-10000) = 124000
Qâ€™s share 25/62*12400=Rs50000
Then profit of Q=50000-12000=Rs38000.

A) 8
B) 6
C) 10
D) 7
E) None
Option C
Solution:
B received 2/3 of the profit
A : B = 1 : 2
Let the total capital = x
Then A’s capital = x/4
B’s capital = x â€“ x/4 = 3x/4
If B’s money was used for a months
Then A:B = (x/4)*15 : (3x/4)*a = 1 : 2
15/4 : 3b/4 = 1 : 2
15 : 3b = 1 : 2
5 : b = 1 : 2
a = 5*2 = 10
8. X, Y and Z enter into a partnership and theirs shares are in the ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4. After two months, X withdraws half of his capital and after 10 months, a profit of Rs.420 is divided among them. What is Yâ€™s share?

B) Rs165
C) Rs 160
D) Rs195
E) None
Option C
Solution:

Ratio of initial investments = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6 : 4 : 3.
Let their initial investments be 6x, 2x and 3x respectively.
Ratio (6x * 2) + (3x * 10) : (4x * 12) : (3x * 12)
= 42 : 48 : 36 ==>7 : 8 : 6.
B’s share = 420 * 8/21 = Rs. 160.
9. If 8 (P’s Capital ) = 10 ( Q’s Capital ) = 12 ( R’s Capital ) , then out of the total profit of Rs 2590 , Q will receive ?
A) Rs. 740
B) Rs. 630
C) Rs. 840
D) Rs. 730
E) None
Option C
Solution:

8p = 10q = 12r
4p = 5q = 6r
q = 4p/5
r = 4p/6 = 2p/3
P : Q : R = p : 4p/5 : 2p/3
15:12:10
Q’s share = 2590 * (12/37) = 70*12 = Rs. 840.
