Q 1.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A and B invest in the ratio of 3 : 5 respectively. After 6 months , C enters the business with the investment of the capital equal to that of B. What will be the ratio of the profits of A,B and C at the end of year?

6 : 10 : 5

B

3 : 5 : 5

C

3 : 5 : 2

D

6 : 2 : 3

##### Explanation

Let investment of A = 3x
Investment of B = 5x
Investment of C = 5x

As we know ratio of profits = Ratio of investments
A's share : B's share : C's share

= 3x X 12 : 5x X 12 :5x X (12 - 6)

= 3x X 12 : 5x X 12 :5x X 6 = 6 : 10 : 5

Q 2.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A and B started business by investing Rs.35000 and 20000 respectively. After 5 months B left the business and C joined the business with the sum of Rs.15000. The profit earned at the end of year is Rs.84125. What is the share of B in profit?

A

Rs.14133

B

Rs.15000

Rs.13460

D

Could not be determined

##### Explanation

Ratio of equivalent capitals of A, B and C

= (35000 X 12) : (20000 X 5) : (15000 X 7)

=35 X 12 : 20 X 5 : 15 X 7

= 84 : 20 : 21

Let A's share = 84x
B's share = 20x
C's share = 21x

According to the question, 84x + 20x + 21x = 84125
= > 125x = 84125

X = (84125 / 125) = 673

B's share = 20x = 20 X 673 = Rs.13460

Q 3.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A and B invest Rs. 3000 and Rs. 4000, respectively in a business. A received Rs. 10 per month out of the profit as a remuneration for running the business and the rest of the profit is divided in proportion to the investments. If in a year A totally receives Rs. 390, what does B receive?

A

Rs.630

Rs.360

C

Rs.480

D

Rs.380

##### Explanation

Let the annual profit be Rs.x
Then, Rs.(x - 120) will be distributed between A and B as their shares of profit.

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments

So, A : B = 3000 : 4000 = 3 : 4

A's share = 120 + (x - 120) X {tex} \frac{3}{7} {/tex}

= > 120 + (x - 120) X {tex} \frac{3}{7} {/tex} = 390

= > (x - 120) X {tex} \frac{3}{7} {/tex} = 390 - 120 = 270

= > x - 120 = 270 X {tex} \frac{7}{3} {/tex} = 630

B's share = {tex} \frac{4}{7} \times (x - 120) {/tex}

= {tex} \frac{4}{7} \times 630 {/tex} = Rs. 360

Q 4.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

Amit and Brijesh started a business with initial investments in the ratio of 12 : 11 and their annual profits were in the ratio of 4 : 1. If Amit invested the money for 11 months, then for what time Brijesh invested the money?

A

9 months

3 months

C

5 months

D

10 months

##### Explanation

Let investment of Amit = 12x
And investment of Brijesh = 11x
Let Bijesh invested the money for Y months.
Then

Amit's investment : Brijesh's investment
= (12x X 11) : (11x X y) = 132x : 11xy
= 12 : y

So {tex} \frac{12}{y} = \frac{4}{1} {/tex} [so ratio of profit is 4 : 1]

= > 4y = 12

So y = {tex} \frac{12}{4} {/tex} = 3 months

Hence, Brijesh invested money for 3 months.

Rs.3360, 4200, 2100

C

Rs.2100, 3360, 4200

D

Rs.2600, 4000, 3060

##### Explanation

A's investment for 36 months = {tex} Rs.8000 \times 36 {/tex} = Rs.288000

B's investment for 36 months = {tex} Rs.10000 \times 36 {/tex} = Rs.360000

C's investment for 30 months = {tex} Rs.6000 \times 30 {/tex} = Rs.180000

A : B : C's ratio of shares = 288 : 360 : 180 = 48 : 60 : 30 = 24 : 30 : 15

Q 22.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A' began a small business with a certain amount of money. After four months from the start of the business. 'B' joined the business with an amount which was Rs.6,000 less than 'A's initial investment. 'C' joined the business after seven months from the start of business with an amount which was Rs.2,000 less than A's initial investment. At the end of the year total investment repented was Rs.1,42,000. What will be A's share in the profit. if B received Rs.8,000 as profit share? (in Rupees)

Rs.48,000

B

Rs.46.500

C

Rs.46.000

D

Rs.42,000

##### Explanation

Let initial investment of A be Rs. x

Total investment at the end of year = 12x + 8 (x - 6000) + 5 (x - 2000)

= 12x + 8x + 5x - 48000 - 10000

= Rs.(25x - 58000)

25x - 58000 = 142000

=> 25x = 142000 + 58000

= 200000

=> x = 200000/25

= Rs. 8000

Ratio of profit sharing for A, B and C = (12 x 8000) : (8 x 2000) : (5 x 6000)

= 96000 : 16000 : 30000

= 48 : 8 : 15

B's share = Rs.8000

A's share = 48/8 x 8000

Q 23.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A and B started a business with the investments in the ratio of 5:3 respectively. After 6 months from the start ofthe business, C joined them and the respective ratio between the investments of B and C was 2:3. If the annual profit earned by them was Rs.12,300. What was the difference between B's share and C's share in the profit?

Rs.900

B

Rs.800

C

Rs.600

D

Rs.400

##### Explanation

A : B = 5:3 = 10 :6

B : C = 2 : 3 = 6 : 9

A : B : C = 10 : 6 : 9

Ratio of the equivalent capitals of A, B and C for 1 month = 10x x 12 : 6x x 12 : 9x x 6

= 20 : 12 : 9

Sum of the terms of ratio

= 20 + 12 + 9 = 41

Difference between the shares of B and C = (12-9/41) x 12300

= Rs. 900

Q 24.

Correct2

Incorrect-0.5

A and B started a business with initial investments in the respective ratio of 18:7. After four months from the start of the business, A invested Rs.2000 more and B invested Rs.7000 more. At the end of one year, if the profit was distributed among them in the ratio of 2:1 respectively. What was the total initial investment with which A and B started the business?

Rs.50,000

B

Rs.25,000

C

Rs.1,50,000

D

Rs.75,000

##### Explanation

A's initial investment = RS.18x B's initial investment = Rs.7x According to the question,

18x x 4 + (18x + 2000) x 8 / 7x x 4 + (7x + 7000) x 8

= 2/1

=> 18x x 4 + (18x + 2000)x2 /

7x x 4 + (7x + 7000) x 8

= 2/1

=> 18x + 36x + 4000

= 14x + 28x + 28000

=> 54x - 42x = 28000 - 4000

=> 12x = 24000

=> x=24000/12 = 2000

Total initial investment of A and B = 25x

= 25 x 2000

= Rs.50000

Q 25.

Correct2
