Explanation:
Ratio of Profits = Ratio of the sums invested
= 18000:  24000 :  36000
= 3 :  4 :  6

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 2
A and B enter into partnership. A invests Rs 16000 and B invests Rs 20000. If the profit at the end of the year amounts to Rs  27000. what would be the share of B in the profit ?
a) Rs 10000            b) Rs 110000          c)Rs 12000            d)Rs 15000      e)Rs 21000
Explanation:

The ratio of the investment of capitals of A and B is 16000 : 20000 = 4 : 5

So they have to share the profit in the ratio of 4 : 5

B's share of profit =  $\frac{5}{9}$ X 27000 = 15000

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 3
A and B Started a business by investing Rs. 90000 and Rs. 165000 respectively. Find the share of A, out of an annual profit of Rs.85000

Explanation:
Ratio of their shares in the profit = 90000: 165000
= 6: 11
:. A' s share = Rs.$[85000 \times \frac{6}{17} ]$  ]= Rs. 30000

Aptitude  Partnerships  Solved Problem 4
A, B and C invested Rs 40000, Rs 100000 and Rs 80000 respectively in a business. The net proift for the years was Rs 24200 which was divided in proportion to their investments. Find the amount of profit B earned ?
a)  Rs 8800            b) Rs 2200          c) Rs 5500         d)Rs 6000      e)Rs 7500
Explanation :                   Ratio of profits = Ratio of the capitals

=   40000 : 100000 :  80000
=  2 : 5 : 4
Share of C in the annual profit Rs 24200 = 24200 X $\frac{4}{11}$   =   Rs 8800

Aptitude  Partnerships  Solved Problem 5
A,B and C invested their capitals in the ratio of 2:5:8. At the end of the year, the difference between the shares of A and C is Rs 3600, the what is the total profit and what is the share of B ?
a) Rs 9000  , Rs 3000
b) Rs  12000, Rs 4500
c) Rs 6000, Rs 2500
d) Rs 8000, Rs 3250
e) None of these
Explanation :
Ratio of Profits = 2:5:8
A's profit = 2x    B's profit= 5x and C's profit = 8x

Difference between the share of A and C = 8x-2x = 6x= Rs 3600
=> x=Rs 600
So , Total Profit = 2x +5x +8x =15x= 15 X 600 = Rs 9000
B's share =  5x = 5 X 600 = Rs 3000.

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 6
Rs 10400 is to be divided among the partners A,B and C. The ratio of their investments is $\frac{1}{2} :\frac{1}{3} :\frac{1}{4}$   . What is share of B ?
a) Rs 1800                 b) Rs 1600                 c ) Rs 3200         d) Rs 4000   e) Rs 6500
Explanation:
The ratio of the investments = $\frac{1}{2} :\frac{1}{3} :\frac{1}{4}$   .

=$\frac{6}{12} :\frac{4}{12} :\frac{3}{12}$
(Here 12 is the LCM of 2,3 and 4)
= 6 : 4 : 3
Therefore ratio of profits = 6 : 4 : 3
Share of B in total profit Rs 10400 = 10400 x $\frac{6}{13}$   = Rs 3200

Aptitude Partnerships Solved Problem 7
A and B are partners in a business. A invests Rs 20000 for 8 months and B invests Rs 30000 for 6 months. They gains 6800 . What is the share share of B ?

Explanation:
A and B invested their capital C1 and C2  for the time periods T2 and C2, then                                               ratio of their profits = C1T1 : C2 T2
A invests Rs 20000 for 8 months and B invests Rs 30000 for 6 months
The ratio of their profits = 20000 X 8 : 30000 X 6
=8 :9
Share of B =    $\frac{9}{17}$ X 6800 = Rs 3600

Aptitude Partnerships Solved Problem 8
A , B and C enter into a partnership . A invests Rs 7200 for 4 months, B invests Rs 2400 for whole year and C invests Rs 3600 for 8 months. The share of B in the profit is Rs 2300. What is the total profit?
a) Rs 6900         b)Rs 6400             c)Rs 4600               d)Rs 13800   e) Rs 7800
Explanation :
If the capital C1 invested for the time period T1 ,and the capital C2 is invested   for the time period T2 and capital C3 is invested for the time periodT3 , then
Ratio of the profits = C1T1 : C2 T2 : C3T3

Therefore, the ratio of profits   A : B : C = 7200 X 4 : 2400 X 12 : 3600 X 8
= 28800  :  28800 : 28800
= 1 : 1 : 1
Share of B= 1x = 2300
Total Profit = 1x +1x +1x =, 3x = 3 X 2300 =Rs 6900

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 9

A , B and C rented a pasture. A puts in 6 oxen for 12 months , B puts in 7 oxen for 8 months and C puts in 8 oxen for 6 months. If the rent of the filed is Rs 792, What rend is paid by C ?
a)  Rs 162                 b)Rs 324               c)Rs 216            d)Rs 252     e)Rs 220
Explanation :
A puts 6 oxen for 12months
B puts 7 oxen for 8 months
C puts 8 oxen for 6 months.
Therefore ratio of rents =  6 X 12 :  7 X 8 : 8 X 6
= 72 : 56 :48
= 9 : 8 : 6

Rent paid by C = Rs 792 X $\frac{6}{23}$    = 216

Explanation:
Ratio of their capitals = 55000 x 12 : 60000 x 9
= 660000: 540000.
= 11: 9

Share of A = Rs 42000 x $\frac{11}{20}$    = Rs 23100

Aptitude - Partnerships  Solved Problem 11
A , B enter into a partnership and together start a business with contributions of Rs 30000 and Rs 40000 respectively. After 4 months , C also joins them with contribution of Rs45000. After 9 months B withdraws  his contribution. At the end of the year , the profit is Rs 24000. What is the share of B in the total profit ?
a)Rs 5000              b)Rs 6000            c)Rs 7000             d) Rs 8000        e) Rs 8500
Explanation:
If the capital C1 invested for the time period T1 ,and the capital C2 is invested   for the time period T2 and capital C3 is invested for the time periodT3 , then
ratio of the profits = C1T1 : C2 T2 : C3T3
The ratio of profits = 30000 x 12  : 40000 x 9 : 90000 : 8
= 36000 : 36000 : 72000
= 1 : 1 : 2
Share of B in the total profit = 24000 x $\frac{1}{4}$    =Rs 6000

=( 20000 x 5 + 15000 x 7) : (20000 x 5 + 16000 x 7) :(20000 x 5  + 26000 x 7)

= 205000 : 212000 : 282000 = 205 : 212 : 282

B's share = Rs. 69900 x $\frac{212}{699}$  = Rs. 21200

Aptitude - Partnerships  Solved Problem 13
A started a business with Rs. 21000 and is joined afterwards by B with Rs. 36000. After how many months did B join, if the profits at the end of the year are divided equally?
a)  3 months         b) 4 months          c) 5 months        d) 6 months        e)7 months
Explanation:    Profit is shared at the end of the year.
So A stays in the business for 12 months
Let B stays in the business for x months.
They shared the profits equally, the P1 : P2 = 1 : 1
If the capital C1 is invested for the time period T1 and capital C2 is invested for the time          period T, then

=>
=> 21000 x 12 = 36000 X x
x                                                        = 7
B stays in the business for 7 months. Therefore B joined the business after 5 months

The capital of B is Rs 300000

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 15
A invested an amount of Rs 50,000 to start a business. After 6 months, B joined him with an amount of Rs 80,000 .At the end of 3 years, they got a profit of Rs 24,500. What is the share of A?

Explanation:
At the of  3 years , they shared profits.
A started the business . So he is in the business for 36 months.
B joined the business after 6 months . So he is in the business for 30 months

Then ratio of their capitals = 36 x 50000 : 30 x  80000
= 3 : 4
A's share in the profit of Rs 24,500 = Rs 24,500 x$\frac{3}{7}$ = Rs 10,500

Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 16
A , B, C and D started a partnership business. A invests 1/3 of the capital, B puts 1/4 of capital ,C invests 1/5 of the capital and D invests the remaining capital. Find the share of D out of a profit of Rs  18000 ?
a) Rs 4000           b)Rs 5000               c) Rs 6000          d) Rs 3900    e)Rs 4200
Explanation:
Total capital invested by A + B + C =  $\frac{1}{3} + \frac{1}{4} +\frac{1}{5}$ = $\frac{47}{60}$
D's capital = 1 - $\frac{47}{60}$ = $\frac{13}{60}$
The ratio of capitals of A,B,C and D = $\frac{1}{3} : \frac{1}{4} :\frac{1}{5} : \frac{13}{60}$
= 20 : 15 : 12 : 13
Therefore share of D = Rs 18000 X  13 /60
=  Rs 3900
Aptitude Partnerships  Solved Problem 17
A ,B and C started a partnership business by investing RS 24000 , Rs 30000 and Rs 36000 respectively. A is working partner and B and C are sleeping partners. .A gets 15% of the annual profit for his work. If B and C got Rs 17000 and Rs 20400 respectively from the annual profit as their shares, what amount did A get from the annual profit ?
a) Rs 21000        b) Rs 23000            c) Rs 22.600       d) Rs 28000   e)Rs 27,500
Explanation:
The ratio of capitals of A,B and C = Rs 24000 : Rs 30000 : Rs 36000
= 4 : 5 : 6
Here A is working partner and B and C are sleeping partner.
So B and C get only profits as their shares and A gets profit and remuneration of 15% profit for his work
Profit ratio of B and C = Rs 17000 : Rs 20400 = 5 :6
A's share of profit = $\frac{4}{15}$ < x 17000 = Rs 13600
85% of profit ( Because A takes 15% of profit as his share)
= 17000+ 20400+13600
=  Rs 41,000
A's remuneration = 15% of total profit = $\frac{15}{85}$  x 51000  = Rs 9000
Total amount A gets = Remuneration + profit
= Rs 9000 + Rs  13600
= Rs 22,600
