### Question 4

It was agreed that A would invest Rs. 5000 for 1 months and B would invest Rs. 16000 for 11 months. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 108600?

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 5000 × 1 = 5000, whereas those by B are 16000 × 11 = 176000. The ratio of these money-months is 5:176. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 108600 × $5/{5 + 176}$ = Rs. 3000.

### Question 5

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. 9600, and the time for which they invested was in the ratio 2:3:7?
