A) Rs.8400

B) Rs.19800

C) Rs.15400

D) Rs.14700

E) None of these

View Answer

Answer is C

Explanation:

Let Z = x. Then Y = x + 6000 and X = x + 6000 + 5000 = x + 11000.

So, x + x + 6000 + x + 11000 = 50000

3x + 17000 = 50000

3x = 33000 => x = 11000

X: Y: Z = 22000: 17000: 11000 = 22: 17: 11

∴ X’s share = Rs. (45000*22/50) = Rs.19800

7. If 4(A’s capital) = 6(B’s capital) = 10(C’s capital), then out of a profit of Rs.4650, C will receive:

Answer is B

Explanation:

Let 4A = 6B = 10C = k. Then, A = k/4, B= k/6 and C= k/10

∴ A: B: C = = k/4:k/6: k/10 = 15: 10: 6

Hence, C’s share = Rs. 4650*(6/31)=Rs.900

8. X, Y, Z enter into partnership. X invests money at the beginning, Y invests double the amount after 4 months and Z invests thrice the amount after 6 months. If the annual profit be Rs.38000, Z’s share is:

Then, ratio of capitals = (x * 12): (2x * 4): (3x * 6) = 12x: 8x: 18x = 6x: 4x: 9x

Z’s share = Rs. 38000*(6/19)=Rs.12000
