 B

Rs. 1500.

 C

Rs. 1300.

 D

Rs. 1600.

Soln.
Ans: a

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 4 × 1 + 8 × 3 = 28, whereas those by B are 4 × 3 + 8 × 1 = 20. The ratio of these money-months is 7:5. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 2400 × $7/{7 + 5}$ = Rs. 1400.


Question 2

X and Y start a venture with investments of Rs. 500 and Rs. 700. After 6 months Z joins with Rs. 500. What is Z's share in the annual profit of Rs. 17400?

 A

Rs. 3000.

 B

Rs. 3100.

 C

Rs. 2900.

 D

Rs. 3200.

Soln.
Ans: a

Sum of the money months is 500 × 12 + 700 × 12 + 500 × 6 = 17400. Share of Z = ${500 × 6}/17400$ × 17400 = Rs. 3000.


Question 3

X and Y start a venture with investments of Rs. 200 and Rs. 400. After 8 months Z joins with Rs. 400. What is Z's share in the annual profit of Rs. 8800?

 A

Rs. 1600.

 B

Rs. 1700.

 C

Rs. 1500.

 D

Rs. 1800.

Soln.
Ans: a

Sum of the money months is 200 × 12 + 400 × 12 + 400 × 4 = 8800. Share of Z = ${400 × 4}/8800$ × 8800 = Rs. 1600.


Question 4

During the first 2 months the investments of A and B were in the ratio 5:19. For the remaining months the investments were in the ratio 19:5. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 28800?

 A

Rs. 20000.

 B

Rs. 20100.

 C

Rs. 19900.

 D

Rs. 20200.

Soln.
Ans: a

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 2 × 5 + 10 × 19 = 200, whereas those by B are 2 × 19 + 10 × 5 = 88. The ratio of these money-months is 25:11. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 28800 × $25/{25 + 11}$ = Rs. 20000.


Question 5

A, B and C hire a coffee vending machine. A uses it for 3 hours and prepares 19 cups, B uses it for 11 hours and prepares 6 cups and C uses it for 8 hours and prepares 7 cups. If the total rent is Rs. 358, how much should A pay?

 A

 B

 C

Rs. 104.

 D

Rs. 134.

Soln.
Ans: a

Sum of the cup-hours is 19 × 3 + 11 × 6 + 8 × 7 = 179. Share of A = ${19 × 3}/179$ × 358 = Rs. 114.
