### Question 1

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. 9600, and the time for which they invested was in the ratio 4:5:3?

### Question 2

During the first 2 months the investments of A and B were in the ratio 7:13. For the remaining months the investments were in the ratio 13:7. What will be the share of A in an annual profit of Rs. 4000?

Rs. 2400.

**B**

Rs. 2500.

**C**

Rs. 2300.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

The profits are shared in the ratio of money-months contributed by the partners. Money-months contributed by A are 2 × 7 + 10 × 13 = 144, whereas those by B are 2 × 13 + 10 × 7 = 96. The ratio of these money-months is 3:2. This is the ratio in which the profits would be divided. A's share = 4000 × $3/{3 + 2}$ = Rs. 2400.
