Explanation:

Lets assume Total profit x
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

Anirudh invest for 8 months,haris invested for 6 and
sahil for 4 months in the ratio of 5:6:4

so ratio = 5*8 : 6*6 : 4*4

=> 10:9:4

So sahil's profit=(4/23)*75900 = 13200

Explanation:

Ajay : Vijay : Sanjay = 10 * 7 : 12 * 5 : 15 * 3
= 70 : 60 : 45 = 14 : 12 : 9.
So Sanjay's rent = Rs. (175 * 9/35) = Rs. 45.

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

| | | Asked In Capgemini |

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

| | | Asked In CapgeminiGlobal Edge |

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.

CRs. 3000

DRs. 3900

| | | Asked In |

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

Explanation:

Given Sharing ratio A & B = 3:7 and B & C = 6:5
=> A : B : C = 18 : 42 : 35
so B's share = (42/95) * 33630
=> B's share = Rs. 14868
