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.

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.
