Q 2 - The investment ratio between A and C is 2:1 but between A and B the investment ratio is 3:2. A firm earned Rs. 157300 as a profit and find out the share of B in profit?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

Let the ratio of profit sharing between A: B: C is 6x : 4x :3x respectively. = 6:4:3 Share of B in profit = Rs. (157300* 4/13) = 48400 Rs.

Q 3 - 1/6 part of capital invested by A for the period of 1/6 times, 1/3 part invested by B for the 1/3 times and rest of the capital invested by C for the rest of the time. What should be the share of B if Rs. 23000 is the profit?

### Answer : A

### Explanation

Here x denote capital and y denote total time. Then, Rs. x/6 for y/6 months for the investment of A and Rs. x/3 for y/3 months for the investment of B. Investment of C = [ x-(x/6+ x/3)] = Rs. x/2 for y months. Then , A: B: C = ( x/6 * y/6) : (x/3* y/3) : (x/2: y) = xy/36 : xy/9 : xy/2 = 1:4: 18 Share of B in profit = Rs. (23000* 4/ 23) = Rs. 4000.

Q 4 - 12:11 was the investment ratio of A and B who started a business and the ratio of profit were 4:1 . The period ofA investment was 11 month and what was the period of B investment?

### Answer : A

### Explanation

Rs. 12x and Rs. 11 x is the investment in a business. If for the y month money invested by B .then, A: B = (12x*11) : (11x*y) = (132x : 11xy) = (12: y) ∴ 12/y = 4/1 = 4y = 12 ⇒ y = 3 So, we can say B invested his share for the period of 3 months in the business.

Q 5 - In a partnership firm A and B invested. For the period of 8 month. A invested Rs 16000 and rest of the capital by B for the rest of the time. Find out the money contributed by B if he claims 2/7 part of the profit ?

### Answer : D

### Explanation

Let total profit of the firm = 1 Share of B in profit = (1-2/7 ) = 5/7 Ratio of profit = 5: 2 Contribution of B = x then (16000*8)/ 4x = 5/2 ⇒20x = 256000 ⇒ x= 12800. Hence, b contributed rs. 12800.

Q 6 - The partners of a firm are A and B . A invested 3 times in the comparison of his partner. While the period of his investment is 2 times in the comparison of B . What should be the total profit of the firm if Rs. 12000 received by B as a share in profit?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

If Rs. x for y months is investment of B . Then the investment of A is Rs. 3x for the period of 2y. ∴ A: B = (3x*2y) : (x:y) = 6xy : xy = 6: 1 Let the total profit be rs. P . Then, P* 1/7 = 12000 ⇒ p = 84000. Hence, the prove that the the profit of the firm is 84000.

Q 7 - In a business A and B are the partners and 1/4 of total capital invested by A for the period of 15 months and 2/3 part of the profit received by B as a share . find out the time period of invested capital of B?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

Let x Rs is the capital of the business and money invested by B used for y month. Capital of A = Rs.x/4 , B ?s capital = Rs. ( x- x/4) =3x/4 A and B investment ratio = (x/4 *15) : (3x/4 * Y) = 15/4 : 3y/4 = 5: y. Profit ratio of A and B = 1/3 : 2/3 = 1:2 ∴ 5/y = 1/2 = y = 10 months.

Q 8 - Geeta and Sita are the partners in the business. Geeta invests Rs 1500 and Sita Rs 2500. Geeta is the working partner and gets 20% of the profit for her contribution in the management. Sita is a sleeping partner. If the profit is Rs 475, find the share of each.

### Answer : A

### Explanation

Payment to be made to Geeta for her contribution in the management = 20% of Rs 475 = 20/100*475 = Rs 95 Balance Profit = Rs (475 - 95) = Rs 380 Ratio of investment by Geeta and Sita = 1500 : 2500 = 3 : 5 Hence, Rs 380 is to be divided among the two in the ratio of 3 : 5. Geeta's share = 3/8 * 380 = Re 142.5 Sita's share = 5/8 * 380 = Re 237.5 Finally Geeta gets = Re (142.5 + 95) = Rs 237.5 And Sita gets = Re 237.5

Q 9 - Arijit invests one half of the capital for 3/4th of the time. Bindu invests one-third of the capital for 1/2 of the time and Charu invests the remaining capital for the whole time. If the profit earned is Rs 510, find the share of each.

### Answer : B

### Explanation

Charu's share of investment = 1 - (1/2 + 1/3) = 1/6 Arijit : Bindu : Charu = (1/2 * 3/4) : (1/3 * 1/2) : (1/6 * 1) = 3/8 : 1/6 : 1/6 = 9/24 : 4/24 : 4:24 = 9 : 4 : 4 Sum of ratios = 9 + 4 + 4 = 17 Profit share of Arijit = 9/17 * 510 = Re 270 Profit share of Bindu = 4/17 * 510 = Re 120 Profit share of Charu = 4/17 * 510 = Re 120

Q 10 - The ratio of investments of two partners is 11:12 and the ratio of their profits is 2:3. If A invested the money for 8 months, find for how much time B invested his money?

### Answer : B

### Explanation

Suppose A invested Re 11 for 8 months and B invested Re 12 for x months. Then, (11*8)/(12*x) = 2/3 Or, 88/12x = 2/3 Or, 24x = 264 Or, x = 11 Hence, B invested for 11 months.
