A)Rs.1622.33

B)Rs.1658.33

C)Rs.1758.33

D)None of these

Answer –**C)Rs.1758.33**

Solution:

Total profit(say)= Rs.100.

After paying to charity, Niharika’s share=85*(12/17)= Rs.60

If Niharika’s share=60, Total profit=Rs.100

If Niharika’s share=1055, Total profit= (100/60)* 1055= Rs.1758.33

**A, B, C started a business with their investments in the ratio 2:4:5. After 8 months, A invested the same amount as before and both B and C withdrew half of their investments. The ratio of their profits at the end of the year is:**

A)10:12;15

B)12:20:25

C)9:12:25

D)12:25:20

Answer –**B)12:20:25**

Solution:

Investments: 2x,4x,5x

A:B:C=2x*8+2x*4 : 4x*8+(4x/2)*4 : 5x*8+(5x/2)*4

A:B:C= 12:20:25

**A,B and C jointly engaged in a business. It was agreed that A would invest Rs. 6500 for 6months, B Rs.8400 for 5 months and C Rs.10000 for 3months. A wants to be a working partner and he was to receive 5% of the profits. The profit earned was Rs.7400. Calculate share of C.**

A)Rs.1700

B)Rs.1900

C)Rs.2300

D)Rs.2000

Answer –**B)Rs.1900**

Solution:

A received 5% of the profits i.e. 5% of 7400= Rs.370

Remaining= 7400-370= Rs.7030

Ratio of investments: 6500*6 : 8400*5 : 10000*3

Ratio= 13:14:10, Share of C= (10/37)*7030=Rs.1900

**A, B, C subscribe Rs. 60,000 for a business, A subscribes Rs.8000 more than B and B Rs. 5000 more thanC. Out of a total profit of Rs. 40,000, A receives :**

A)Rs.20000

B)Rs.18000

C)Rs.16000

D)Rs.14000

Answer –**B)Rs.18000**

Solution:

Let C = x then B = x + 5000 and A = x + 5000 + 8000 = x + 13000.

x + x + 5000 + x + 13000 = 60000 <=> 3x = 42000 , x = 14000.

A : B : C = 27000 : 19000 : 14000 = 27 : 19 : 14

A’s share = Rs. (40000 * 27/60 ) = Rs.18,000

**A, B, C rent a pasture. A puts 20 oxen for 8 months, B puts 12 oxen for 6 months and C puts 16 oxen for 4 months for grazing. If the rent of the pasture is Rs. 278, how much must A pay as his share of rent?**

A)Rs.25.11

B)Rs.50.21

C)Rs.60.11

D)None of these

Answer –**C)Rs.60.11**

Solution:

A:B:C = (20*8) : (12*6): (16*4)= 20:9:8

C’s rent= (8/37) * 278= Rs.60.11

**3 partners started a business. Twice the investment of A is equal to thrice the capital of B and capital of B is four times the capital of C. Find the share of B out of profit of Rs.309100.**

C)Rs.112400

D)Rs.123400

Answer –**C)Rs.112400**

Solution:

C=x, B=4x

2(A’s capital)= 3(B’s capital)= 3*4x

A’s capital= (3*4x /2) = 6x

Ratio: 6:4:1

B’s share= 4/11 * 309100

**A, B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio 5/2:4/3:7/5 . After 4 months, A increases his share 23%. If the total profit at the end of one year be Rs.31,800, then B’s share in the profit is:**

Solution:

Ratio= 75:40:42

A:B:C = 75x *4+ (123/100 *75x *8) : 40x *12 : 42x*12 = 173: 80 :84

B’s share= 80/337 * 31800 = Rs. 7548.96

D)20:50:64

Answer –**B)20:49:64**

Solution:

Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months

14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8

14x/8y = 5/7

y = (49/20)x

14x/7z = 5/8

z = (16/5)x

x:y:z = x:(49/20)x:(16/5)x
