**A and B starts a business and invests Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 30,000 respectively. B is an active partner and he gets 25% of the profit separately. If their business yields them a total of Rs. 30,000 as profit, what is the share of B at the end of a year?**

A) Rs 18,000

B) Rs 13,500

C) Rs 11,500

D) Rs 21,000

E) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

**D) Rs 21,000**

Explanation:

Ratio in which they get profits is 20,000 : 30,000 = 2 : 3

B gets 25% of 30,000 = 7,500

Profit left which is to be divided in ratio 2 : 3 = 30,000 – 7,500 = 22,500

Now B gets [3/(2+3)] * 22,500 = 13,500

So total share of B = 7500+13500

**In a business A and C invested amounts in the ratio 3:2, whereas A and B invested amounts in the ratio 4:1. If the total profit at the end of a year is Rs 35,650, find the share of A.**

A) Rs 18,600

B) Rs 12,600

C) Rs 16,200

D) Rs 13,600

E) Rs 20,700

###### Answer & Explanation

**A) Rs 18,600**

Explanation:

B/A = 1/4, A/C = 3/2

So B : A : C = 1*3 : 4*3 : 4*2 = 3 : 12 : 8

Share of A = [12/(3+12+8)] * 35,650**3 partners started a business. The capital invested by B was two-third that of A and also it was thrice the investment of C. Find the share of B out of a total profit of Rs 3,33,200.**

A) Rs 1,02,200

B) Rs 2,05,600

C) Rs 67,300

D) Rs 1,17,600

E) Rs 1,27,600

###### Answer & Explanation

**D) Rs 1,17,600**

Explanation:

Let investment of B = Rs x, then of A = (3/2)*x, and of C = (1/3)*x

So their profit sharing ratio A : B : C =

(3/2)*x : x : (1/3)*x = 9 : 6 : 2

Share of B = [6/(9+6+2)] * 333,200

**A starts a business with Rs 20,000 and after 4 months B also joins with some capital. After a year, the profit is divided between them in the ratio 5 : 3. How much did B invested?**

A) Rs 12,000

B) Rs 18,000

C) Rs 15,050

D) Rs 12,750

E) Rs 15,800

###### Answer & Explanation

**B) Rs 18,000**

Explanation:

Let B invests Rs x, then ratio of their profits

20000*12 : x*8 = 30,000 : x

So 30,000/x = 5/3

Solve, x = 18,000**A, B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio 2 : 3 : 5 . After 2 months, A increases his share 20% and B by 10%. If the total profit at the end of one year is Rs 1,90,500, what is the share of C at the end of year?**

A) Rs 45,000

B) Rs 90,000

C) Rs 58,500

D) Rs 79,600

E) Rs 65,900

###### Answer & Explanation

**B) Rs 90,000**

Explanation:

Let amounts invested be 2x, 3x, 5x resp.

Then ratio of profits =

A : B : C

2x*2 + (120/100)*2x*10 : 3x*2 + (110/100)*3x*10 : 5x*12

28x : 39x : 60x

C’s share = [60/(28+39+60)] * 190500

**A puts Rs 50 and B puts Rs 45 in a game. At the end of 4 months, A withdrew half of his money and at the end of 6 months B also withdrew half of his money. Now C also wants to play and puts Rs 70 and remains until the end of year. In what ratio the profit will be divided among them?**

A) 91 : 60 : 85

B) 61 : 81 : 72

C) 65 : 80 : 74

D) 84 : 80 : 81

E) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

**E) None of these**

Explanation:

A’s share : B’s share : C’s share

50*4 + (50/2) * 8 : 45*6 + (45/2) * 6 : 70*6

80 : 81 : 84

**A and B started a business by investing Rs 8,000 and Rs 9,000 respectively. After 4 months A withdrew Rs 400 and B added Rs 400 more. What is the share of B from the profit of Rs 10,200?**

A) Rs 5460

B) Rs 5480

C) Rs 5560

D) Rs 4460

E) Rs 4640

###### Answer & Solution

**C) Rs 5560**

**Explanation:**

8000*4 + 7600*8 : 9000*4 + 9400*8

116 : 139

Share of B = 139/(116+139) * 10200 = 5560**Out of a total profit of Rs 12,000, A received Rs 8000 as his share. If A invested Rs 20000 for 6 months while B invested his amount for the whole year, then find the amount that B invested.**

A) Rs 6,000

B) Rs 7,000

C) Rs 6,500

D) Rs 5,000

E) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

**D) Rs 5,000**

Explanation:

Profits ratio = 8000 : 4000 = 2 : 1

So

20,000*6 : x*12 = 2 : 1

10000/x = 2/1

x = 5,000**The profit received at the end of a year is divided among A, B and C in the ratio 5:4:7 respectively. The share of A is Rs 2300 more than that of B. What is the amount that C got?**

A) Rs 26,100

B) Rs 16,800

C) Rs 14,100

D) Rs 16,100

E) Rs 19,140

###### Answer & Explanation

**D) Rs 16,100**

Explanation:

Their shares are 5x, 4x, 7x resp.

5x – 4x = 2300

x = 2300

So C got 7*2300**In a business, A in invests 1/4th of the total capital for 1/4th of the time. B invests 1/5th of the total capital for half of the time and C invests the remaining capital for the whole time. What is the share of C in the total profit of Rs 7410?**

A) Rs 5100

B) Rs 4170

C) Rs 5720

D) Rs 2100

E) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

**C) Rs 5720**

Explanation:

Let the whole time is 1. then A invests for 1/4, B invests for 1/2 and C for whole 1.

Contribution of C = 1 – (1/4 + 1/5) = 11/20

So A’s share : B’s share : C’s share

1/4 * 1/4 : 1/5 * 1/2 : 11/20 * 1

1/16 : 1/10 : 11/20

5 : 8 : 44

Share of C in profit = 44/(5+8+44) * 7410 = 5720
