Solution

Goodwill = Super Profits x `100/"Normal Rate of Return"`

Super Profits = Average Profit - Normal Profit

Average Profit = Rs. 1,50,000 (Given)

Normal Profit = Capital Employed x Normal Rate of Return
Normal Profit = ( 3,00,000 + 2,00,000) x 20 % = Rs. 1,00,000

Super Profit = 1,50,000 - 1,00,000 = Rs. 50,000

Goodwill = 50,000 x `100/20` = Rs. 2,50,000.
