### Question 1

A, B and C start a partnership business by investing in the ratio 3:5:4. 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. 21600?

### Question 2

During the first 1 months the investments of A and B were in the ratio 5:13. For the remaining months the investments were in the ratio 13:5. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 37800?

**B**

Rs. 26000.

**C**

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 1 × 5 + 11 × 13 = 148, whereas those by B are 1 × 13 + 11 × 5 = 68. The ratio of these money-months is 37:17. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 37800 × $37/{37 + 17}$ = Rs. 25900.

### Question 3

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 8000 × 2 = 16000, whereas those by B are 17000 × 10 = 170000. The ratio of these money-months is 8:85. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 46500 × $8/{8 + 85}$ = Rs. 4000.
