A and B are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2. They admit C into the partnership for onefourth share of the profits while A and B as between themselves are sharing profits & losses equally. The new profit sharing ratio will be _______.
Old ratio (A and B) = 3 : 2
C is admitted for 1 / 4 share
Let the combined share of A, B and C = 1
Combined share of A and B after C's admission = 1  C's share = 1  (1 / 4) = 3 / 4
New share :
A = (3 / 4) * (1 / 2) = 3 / 8
B = (3 / 4) * (1 / 2) = 3 / 8
C = 1 / 4
Therefore, A : B : C = 3 / 8 : 3 / 8 : 1 / 4 = 3 : 3 : 2
Sacrificing ratio = Old ratio  New ratio
A's sacrifice = (3 / 5)  (3 / 8) = 9 / 24
B's sacrifice = (2 / 5)  (3 / 8) = 1 / 24
Therefore, sacrificing ratio of A and b is 9 : 1

Old ratio (X and Y) = 4 : 3
Z admit for 3/7 share of profit
X sacrifice in favour of Z = 2/7
Y sacrifice in favour of Z = 1/7
New ratio = Old ratio  sacrificing ratiio
X's new ratio = (4/7)  (2/7) = 2/7
Y's new ratio = (3/7)  (1/7) = 2/7
C's share = 3/7
Therefore, new profit sharing ratio of X, Y and Z is 2 : 2 : 3

New Profit sharing ratio = 1  1/5 = 4/5
A= 5/8 * 4/5 = 20/40 ; B= 3/8 * 4/5 = 12/40 ; C= 1/5 * 8/8 = 8/40
i.e. 5 ; 3 ; 2.
Capitals = 120000 * 5 = 600000
A  600000 * 5/10 = 300000
B  600000 * 3/10 = 180000
C  600000 * 2/10 = 120000
A and B are partners sharing the profit in the ratio of 3:2. They take C as the new partner, who brings in Rs. 25,000 against capital and Rs. 10,000 against goodwill. New profit sharing ratio is 1:1:1. In what ratio will this amount will be shared among the old partners A & B.
Three partners A , B , C start a business . B's Capital is four times C's capital and twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital . If the total profit is Rs 16500 at the end of a year ,Find out B's share in it.
Suppose C's capital = x then
B's capital = 4x (Since B's Capital is four times C's capital)
A's capital = 6x ( Since twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital)
A:B:C =6 x : 4x : x
= 6 : 4 : 1
B's share = 16500 * (4/11) = 1500*4 = 6000.
