### Question 1

The investments of three partners are in an AP. Their venture makes an annual profit of Rs. 2700. What is the share of the partner who neither invested the most nor the least?

### Question 2

X and Y invest in a business in the ratio 7 : 13. If X earns Rs. 2800, what is the profit?

### Question 3

During the first 3 months the investments of A and B were in the ratio 3:19. For the remaining months the investments were in the ratio 19:3. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 13200?

**A**

Rs. 9000.

**B**

Rs. 9100.

**C**

Rs. 8900.

**D**

Rs. 9200.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 3 × 3 + 9 × 19 = 180, whereas those by B are 3 × 19 + 9 × 3 = 84. The ratio of these money-months is 15:7. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 13200 × $15/{15 + 7}$ = Rs. 9000.
