Solutions (1 to 5)

Percentage profit by company A = 35%
Percentage profit by company B = 40%
Let expenditure be x
(Income of A – x)/x = 0.35
Income of A = 1.35x
(Income of B – x)/x = 0.4
Income of B = 1.4x
Income of A:Income of B = 1.35:1.4 = 27:28

Amount of Profit = Income – Expenditure = 1.5 lakhs
Percentage of profit = 40%
1.5/x = 0.4
x = 3.75

Average percentage profit cannot be calculated because we do not know the individual income and expenditure of each year.

Percentage profits of both the companies A and B in 2008 = 50% and 30%
Let the incomes be x
(x-Expenditure of A)/Expenditure of A = 0.5
Expenditure of A = x/1.5
(x – Expenditure of B)/Expenditure of B = 0.3
Expenditure of B = x/1.3
Ratio = x/1.5:x/1.3 = 13:15
