Divide Rs.118000 among three persons A, B and C such that the ratio of the shares of A and B is 3:4 and that of B:C is 5:6 ?

A.

A) A = 48000 B = 40000 C = 30000

B.

A = 30000 B = 40000 C = 48000

C.

A = 30000 B = 48000 C = 40000

D.

A = 40000 B = 48000 C = 30000

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Compound ratio of A:B:C

A:B = 3:4

B:C = 5:6

———-

A:B:C = 15:20:24

We can divide Rs.118000 in this ratio.

Share of A = 15/59 x 118000 = 30000

Share of B = 20/59 x 118000 = 40000

Share of C = 24/59 x 118000 = 48000

D.

Rs. 4800

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

The ratio in which the four agencies will be paying the rents = 15 * 12 : 12 * 20 : 18 * 18 : 16 * 15

= 180 : 240 : 324 : 240 = 45 : 60 : 81 : 60

Let us consider the four amounts to be 45k, 60k, 81k and 60k respectively.

The total rent paid by the four agencies = 45k + 60k + 81k + 60k= 246k

It is given that A paid Rs. 1125

45k = 1125 => k = 25

246k = 246(25) = Rs. 6150

Thus the total rent paid by all the four agencies is Rs. 6150.

Rs. 1087 was divided among A, B and C. Such that if Rs. 10, Rs. 13 and Rs. 14 be diminished from their shares respectively, the remainders will be in the ratio of 3 : 5 : 7. What is the share of A?

A.

Rs. 320

B.

Rs. 310

C.

Rs. 210

D.

Rs. 220

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Total money divided among three = Rs. 1087

Total amount of money diminished = (10 + 13 + 14) = Rs. 37

Remaining money = 1087 – 37 = Rs. 1050.

Given that, remaining amount is in the ratio of 3 : 5 : 7.

So, share of A = (3/15)*1050 + 10

= 210 + 10 = Rs. 220

Therefore, share of A = Rs. 220.

Rs. 13,923

B.

Rs. 10,920

C.

Rs. 14,940

D.

Rs. 10,993

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Ratio of share of profit between A, B and C = Ratio of investment

= 1600 : 3600 : 4800

= 4 : 9 : 12

Given, Total Profit earned by A = Rs. 5330

–> A’s share of Rs.5330 includes a fifth (ie., 1/5) of the total profit for his services and the share of the balance four fifths (i.e, 4/5) of the profit in the ratio of their investments.

A will get (4/25)th, B will get (9/25)th and C will get (12/25)th of four-fifths of the total profit as they share the remaining four-fifths of the profit in the ratio of their investments.

So, Total Profit earned by A = (1/5)x + (4/25)x * (4/5) = 5330

—> (x/5) + (16x/125) = 5330

—> (25x + 16x)/ 125 = 5330

—> 41x / 125 = 5330

—> x = (5330 * 125) / 41

—> x = 16,250

Then, B’s profit= (4/5) * (9/25) * x

= (4/5) * (9/25) * 16,250

= Rs. 4,680

C’s profit= (4/5) * (12/25) * x

= (4/5) * (12/25) * 16,250

= Rs. 6,240

Sum of the profit of B and C= Rs. 4,680 + Rs. 6,240 = Rs. 10,920

A and B invests Rs.10000 each, A investing for 8 months and B investing for all the 12 months in the year. If the total profit at the end of the year is Rs.25000, find their shares?

A.

Rs.8000, Rs.17000

B.

Rs.9000, Rs.16000

C.

Rs.18000, Rs.7000

D.

Rs.10000, Rs.15000

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

The ratio of their profits A:B = 8:12 = 2:3

Share of A in the total profit = 2/5 * 25000 = Rs.10000 Share of A in the total profit = 3/5 * 25000 = Rs.15000

Madhu started a business and he invested in 76000, After some month, Amar came to join with him and invest 57000.The end of the year the total profit was divided among them into ratio form 2 : 1.Find after how many months Amar join?

A.

7 months

B.

8 months

C.

3 months

D.

4 months

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

we can assume that Amar join into business after x months. So Amar money was invest into (12 – x ) months.

(76000×12)/(57000×(12−x))=2/1

–> 912000 = 114000 ( 12 – x ) = 114 ( 12 – x ) = 912

–> x = 4

After 4 months amar join the business.

A.

Rs. 6200

B.

Rs. 6400

C.

A, B and C enter into a partnership and their shares are in the ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4. After 2 months, A withdraws half of his capital and after 10 months, a profit of Rs. 378 is divided among them. What is B’s share ?

A.

169

B.

225

C.

144

D.

339

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Ratio of initial investments = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6 : 4 : 3.

Let their initial investments be 6x, 2x and 3x respectively.

A : B : C = (6x * 2 + 3x * 10) : (4x * 12) : (3x * 12) = 42 : 48 : 36 = 7 : 8 : 6.

B’s share = Rs. (378 * 8/21) = Rs. 144.
