### Question 1

A, B and C start a partnership business. A invests Rs. 900 and C invests Rs. 600. What should B have invested if it wanted to earn a share of Rs. 400 in the annual profit of Rs. 800?

### Question 2

A, B and C start a partnership business by investing equal amounts of money. What would be the share of B if the annual profit is Rs. 3600, and the time for which they invested are in an AP?

**A**

Rs. 1200.

**B**

Rs. 1300.

**C**

Rs. 1100.

**D**

Rs. 1400.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the times be a - d, a and a + d. The amounts are same but times are different. So the share should be in the ratio of times. Share of B = $(time of B)/(sum of times)$ × 3600 = $a/{3a}$ × 3600 = Rs. 1200.

### Question 3

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 9 : 19. It was decided that any loss would be shared in the inverse ratio of the investments. If the total loss is Rs. 16800, what is the burden on A?

### Question 4

A, B and C start a partnership business by investing in the ratio 4:5:3. It was agreed that (1/3)^{rd} of the profit would be divided equally, and the remaining proportionately. What is B's share in a profit of Rs. 18000?

### Question 5

It was agreed that A would invest Rs. 7000 for 1 months and B would invest Rs. 10000 for 11 months. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 46800?

**A**

Rs. 2800.

**B**

Rs. 2900.

**C**

Rs. 2700.

**D**

Rs. 3000.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 7000 × 1 = 7000, whereas those by B are 10000 × 11 = 110000. The ratio of these money-months is 7:110. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 46800 × $7/{7 + 110}$ = Rs. 2800.
