Rs. 700.

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 6000 × 2 = 12000, whereas those by B are 10000 × 10 = 100000. The ratio of these money-months is 3:25. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 5600 × $3/{3 + 25}$ = Rs. 600.

### Question 2

X starts a business with a capital of Rs. 4200. Some months later Y joins him with a capital of Rs. 700. For how much period does Y join if the profits are shared in the ratio 18 : 1?

**A**

4.

**B**

5.

**C**

3.

**D**

6.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Money-months of X are 4200 × 12 = 50400. If money-months of X are 18 then money-months of Y are 1. So, if money-months of X are 50400, money-months of Y are $1/18 × 50400$, which gives months of Y = ${1 × 50400}/{18 × 700}$ = 4 months.
