Anusha:Harika:Santhosh = 35000:45000:55000

  • Anusha:Harika:Santhosh = 35:45:55
  • Anusha:Harika:Santhosh = 7:9:11

Given, profit of 40,500

Consider 7:9:11 =7 Parts:9 parts:11 parts = 7P:9P:11P

Therefore, 7P+9P+11P = 40500

  • P=1500

Share of Anusha:Harika:Santhosh=7P:9P:11P


Anusha’s Share =7P = 7*1500=10500

Harika’s Share  = 9P=9*1500 =13500

Santhosh’s Share =11P=11*1500=16500

Therefore,The Answer is “A

2.Varma started a business investing Rs.45000.After 3 months,Santosh joined him with the capital of Rs.60000.After another 6 months,Maanasa joined with a capital of Rs.90000.At the end of the year they made a profit of 20,000 what would be the Maanasa’s share in it?   [2 Marks]

  4. Rs.8020

The Answer is “A”



                       45K*(12th month):   60K*(9th month):     90K*(3rd month)

  • 2    :   2  :  1
  • Profit =20000
  • 2P+2P+1P=20000
  • 5P=20000
  • P=4000

Manasa’s Share = 1P

  • 1P=1*4000=4000

3.P And Q  started a business with initial investments in the ratio of 14:15 and their profits are in the ratio of 7:6.If P invested the money for 10 months,then for how many months did Q invest his money?  [1 Mark]

  1. Rs.11 months
  2. Rs.12 months
  3. Rs.8 months
  4. Rs.10 months

The Answer is “C”


Investment = 14:15

Profit          = 7:6

P invested the money for 10 months,Then Q(months)=?

Investment                                        Profit

      P  Q                                               P  Q

      14:15                                               7:6

P invested the money for 10 months

14*10:15*X : :7:6

140:15X :: 7:6

Product of Extremities = Product of Means

140*6 =15X*7

X=8 months

Therefore,Q Invests his money for 8 months.

4.P,Q and R entered into a partnership.They invested Rs.40000,Rs.80000 and Rs.120,000 respectively.At the end of 1st year,Q withdraws Rs.40000  while at the end of the second year R withdraws Rs.80000.In what ratio will the profit be shared at the end of 3 years?   [2 Marks]

  1. 3:4:7
  2. 2:3:5
  3. 3:4:6
  4. 4:7:6

The Answer is “A”


P : Q : R = 40,000:80,000:120,000

  • P : Q : R =40K:80K:120K

1st Year:

                                               P : Q : R


2nd Year:

Q withdraws 40K at the end of 1st Year.

                                               P : Q : R




3rd Year:

R withdraws 80,000 at the end of 2nd year

    P: Q : R




Now,Add all the 3 years of money that was invested.

P’s Share :40K+40K+40K =120K

Q’s Share:80K+40K+40K =160K

R’s Share:120K+120K+40K=280K

Therefore P:Q:R =120K:160K:280K

Therefore P:Q:R =3:4:7

         12X      :         12X       :       12X

             1      :            1         :        1

Given,Profit =Rs.27000/-

From the Above,

1P+1P+1P = 27000

  • 3P =27000
  • 1P= 9000

                            3          :         5

Santosh = Working Partner = 10% Share of Profit=960

Profit =9600/-

9600-960 = 8640


8P      =8640

1P  = 1080

Money Received by Santosh = 3P+960



Money Received by Santosh =Rs.4200/-

9.P,Q and R Jointly thought of engaging themselves in a business venture.It was agreed that P would invest Rs.6500 rupees for 6 months,Q,8400 for 5 months and R,Rs.10,000 for 3 months.P wants to be the working member for which he was to receive 5% of the profits.The profit earned was Rs.7400.Calculate the share of B in the profit:  [2 Marks]

                       P                  Q                   R

                   6500*6   :    8400*5   :     10000*3

                        13     :     14          :         10

P is a working Partner

P =5% of Profits

P = 5% of 7400


Before dividing the profits,Rs.370 has to be deducted from the Total Profit of 7400 i.e.Rs.7030/-

Now,Rs.7030 is divided in between P,Q&R

13P+14P+10P = 7030

1P = 190

Q’s Share =14P=14*190=Rs.2660/-
