### Question 2

### Question 3

X starts a business with a capital of Rs. 3200. Some months later Y joins him with a capital of Rs. 400. For how much period does Y join if the profits are shared in the ratio 16 : 1?

**Ans: a**

Money-months of X are 3200 × 12 = 38400. If money-months of X are 16 then money-months of Y are 1. So, if money-months of X are 38400, money-months of Y are $1/16 × 38400$, which gives months of Y = ${1 × 38400}/{16 × 400}$ = 6 months.

### Question 4

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. 10800, and the time for which they invested are in an AP?

**A**

Rs. 3600.

**B**

Rs. 3700.

**C**

Rs. 3500.

**D**

Rs. 3800.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the times be a - d, a and a + d. The amounts are same but times are different. So the share should be in the ratio of times. Share of B = $(time of B)/(sum of times)$ × 10800 = $a/{3a}$ × 10800 = Rs. 3600.

### Question 5
