ARs. 1000
BRs. 3000
CRs. 4000
DRs. 5000

x * (1-1/3-1/4) = 5000
=> x*(12-4-3)/12 = 5000
x = 5000*12/5 = Rs. 12000
so A's share = Rs. (1/3*12000) = Rs. 4000

X and Y started a business together. If X invested Rs. 16,000 for 8 months and Y invested some amount in the business for 4 months. If Y claims 2/7 of the total profit earned. How much money was invested by Y?
ARs. 10500
BRs. 11900
CRs. 12800
DRs. 13600
Answer: Option C
Explanation:Lets assume the total profit = Rs. T
so Y part = 2*T/7 and
X part = T - 2*T/7 = 5*T/7
X, Y ratio
=> X : Y = 5*T/7 : 2*T/7 = 5 : 2
Y invested Rs.P
so (16000 * 8) / (P * 4) = 5/2
=> P = (16000 * 8 * 2) /(5 * 4)
=> P = Rs. 12800

Three partners A, B, C start a business. Twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital and B's capital is four times C's capital. Out of a total profit of Rs. 16,500 at the end of the year, B's share is:
A5000
B6000
C4000
D5500
Answer: Option B
Explanation:Let C capital = x. so B capital = 4x
2 *(A capital) = 3 * 4x
=> A's capital = 6x
So A : B : C = 6x : 4x : x = 6 : 4 : 1
So, B's capital = Rs. [16500 * 4/11] = Rs. 6000.

A, B and C started a business by investing Rs. 40,500, Rs. 45,000 and Rs. 60,000 respectively. After 6 months C withdrew Rs. 15,000 while A invested Rs. 45,000 more. In annual profit of Rs. 56,100, the share of C will exceed that of A by:
ARs. 900
BRs. 1100
CRs. 3000
DRs. 3900
Answer: Option D
Explanation:For one year the capital is
A = (40500 * 6 + 45000 * 6) = Rs. 5,13,000
B = (45000 * 12) = Rs. 5,40,000
C = (60000 * 6 + 45000 * 6) = Rs. 6,30,000
Ratio A : B : C = 513 : 540 : 630
C's share will exceed that of A by
= [(630 - 513)/1683] * 56100 => (117/1683) * 56100
=> (117/3) * 100 = 39 * 100 = Rs. 3900
