### Question 2

X starts a business with a capital of Rs. 3000. Some months later Y joins him with a capital of Rs. 500. For how much period does Y join if the profits are shared in the ratio 24 : 1?

**Ans: a**

Money-months of X are 3000 × 12 = 36000. If money-months of X are 24 then money-months of Y are 1. So, if money-months of X are 36000, money-months of Y are $1/24 × 36000$, which gives months of Y = ${1 × 36000}/{24 × 500}$ = 3 months.
