+14,000*4 + 15,000*4
26 : 31 : 36
So C gets = (36/93) * 46,500

QUESTION: 14

The investment of A is twice as that of B and thrice as that of C. B invested for twice the months than A and thrice the months than C. Who will earn the highest profit?

Solution:

E) None of these Explanation: If A invested Rs x, then B Rs (x/2) and C invests Rs (x/3).
Let B invested for y months, then A for (y/2)months, and C for (y/3) months So ratio of profit sharesA : B : C
x*(y/2) : (x/2)*(y) : (x/3)*(y/3) 1/2 : 1/2 : 1/9 = 9 : 9 : 2
Both A and B gets equal and highest profits.

QUESTION: 15

Out of the total investment, A invested 1/4th , B invested 1/3rd of the remaining and C the remaining. B earned Rs 10,000 after a year. Find the yearly profit of all.

Solution:

B) Rs 40,000 Explanation: Let total investment = Rs x Then A’s = (1/4)*x Remaining = 3/4th of x So B’s investment = (1/3)*(3x/4) = x/4 And C’s = x – (x/4 + x/4) = x/2 so ratio of profits = x/4 : x/4 : x/2 = 1 : 1 : 2 so 1/4 * x = 10,000 x = 40,000

QUESTION: 16

A and B invested Rs 20,000 and Rs 25,000 in a business for 1 year and 8 months respectively. A being a working partner earned 25/3% profit out of a total profit of Rs 60,000 and after this the profit was divided in the ratio of their investments. What is the share of B in the annual profit?

E) Rs 25,000 Explanation: A’s share : B’s share 20,000*12 : 25,000*8
6 : 5
A got its salary as = [(25/3)/100] * 60,000 = 5000 Remaining profit = 60,000 – 5000 = 55,000 So B gets = 5/11 * 55000

QUESTION: 18

A, B and C received their profit shares in the raio 4 : 6 : 9 respectively. A and B received a total of Rs 60,000. What is the amount that C and A got together?

Solution:

D) Rs 78,000 Explanation: Their shares are 4x, 6x, 9x resp. 4x + 6x = 60,000 x = 6,000 So C got 9*6000 = 54,000 and A got 4*6000 = 24000 So total = 78,000

QUESTION: 19

A, B and C start a business and their investments are in the ratio 4 : 3 : 6. Both A and B starts the business and C joins them after 6 months. It was decided that C will get a monthly salary of Rs 500 from the annual profits. C’s total salary came out to be 10% of the annual profit after a year. What is the share of A in the total profits?

Solution:

C) Rs 10,800 Explanation: After a year C gets salary = 500*6 = Rs 3,000 [Since C was for 6 months in the business with each month earning 500] So 10% of total profit after a year = 3,000 Total profit = Rs 30,000 A invested for 12 months, B for 12, and C for 6 months Ratio of profit shares = 4*12 : 3*12 : 6*6 = 4 : 3 : 3
Profit left after deducting salary of C = 30,000 – 3,000 = 27,000 So share of A = [4/(4+3+3)] * 27,000
