Question 133

# Three friends X,Y,Z started a partnership business investing money in the ratio of the 5 :4:2 respectively for a period of 3 years.What is the amount received by X as share in the total profit ?I.Total amount invested in the business is Rs.22,000II.Profit was distributed after a period of 2 yearsIII.The average amount of profit earned per year is Rs 2,750

Solution

Ratio of investment of X : Y : Z = 5 : 4 : 2

To find the share of profit earned by X (or anyone), we need to find the total profit earned.

From statement III : Average profit for 3 years = Rs. 2750

=> Total profit = $$2750 \times 3$$ = Rs. 8250

Amount received by X = $$\frac{5}{(5+4+2)} \times 8250$$ = Rs. 3750

Thus, statements I and II are redundant.

=> Ans - (D)
