MCQ

A, B and C enter into a partnership in the ratio 7/2:4/3:6/5. After 4 months, A increase in his share 50%. If the total profit at the end of one year be ₹21600, then B's share in the profit is

Let the initial investments be 105x, 40x and 36x.

∴ A : B : C  = [105x xx4+105x xx150/100xx8]:(4x xx12):(36x xx12)

= 1680x:480x:432x

= 35:10:9

= Hence, B's share = ₹(21600xx10/54) = ₹4000
