    Explanation:

    A : B
    4000*8 + 4400*4 : 6000*8 + 5600*4
    31 : 44
    So B gets = (44/75) * 14,250
  2. 2 friends – A and B invested in a business by investing Rs 10,000 and Rs 12,000 respectively. After 8 months, both took out Rs 2,000. What is the profit of B from a total profit of Rs 24,800 after the end of a year?

    Explanation:

    A : B
    10000*8 + 8000*4 : 12000*8 + 10000*4
    14 : 17
    So B gets = (17/31) * 24,800
  3. 3 partners started a business. A, B and C invested Rs 5000, Rs 6000 and Rs 7000 respectively. After 4 months all invested the same amount as before for another 4 months. And then each of them invested Rs 1000 more. If after a year a total profit of Rs 46,500 is made, what is the profit of C?

    E) Rs 18,500
    Answer & Explanation
    D) Rs 18,000
    Explanation:

    5000*4 +10,000*4 + 11,000*4 : 6000*4 +12,000*4 + 13,000*4 : 7000*4 +14,000*4 + 15,000*4
    26 : 31 : 36
    So C gets = (36/93) * 46,500
  4. 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?
    A) A
    B) B
    C) C
    D) Cannot be determined
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    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 shares-
    A : 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.
  5. 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.
    A) Rs 45,000
    B) Rs 40,000
    C) Rs 58,500
    D) Rs 49,600
    E) Rs 65,900
    Answer & Explanation
    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
  6. 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?
    A) Rs 30,000
    B) Rs 26,000
    C) Rs 25,600
    D) Rs 27,800
    E) Rs 25,000
    Answer & Explanation
    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
  7. Out of a total profit of Rs 19,600, B received Rs 10,000 as his share. If A invested Rs 8,000 for 6 months while B invested his amount for 5 months, then what is the amount invested by B?
    A) Rs 6,000
    B) Rs 8,500
    C) Rs 8,500
    D) Rs 10,000
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) Rs 10,000
    Explanation:

    Profits ratio = 8000*6 : x*5 = 9600 : x
    So
    [x/(9600+x)] * 19,600 = 10,000
    Solve, x = 10,000
  8. 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?
    A) Rs 66,000
    B) Rs 90,000
    C) Rs 54,000
    D) Rs 78,000
    E) Rs 59,140
    Answer & Explanation
    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
  9. 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?
    A) Rs 9,500
    B) Rs 11,500
    C) Rs 10,800
    D) Rs 10,000
    E) Rs 12,800
    Answer & 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
  10. A, B and C invested Rs 1000 for 8 months, Rs 1200 for 6 months and Rs 1500 for some months. Out of a total profit of Rs 5,675 as profit, A received Rs 2000. For how much months did C invested?
    A) 7
    B) 4
    C) 5
    D) 6
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    C) 5
    Explanation:

    1000*8 : 1200*6 : 1500*x
    80 : 72 : 15x
    So 80/(80+72+15x) * 5675 = 2000
    Solve, x = 5
