#### Solution

 Journal Entries Date Particulars L.F. Debit Amount Rs Credit Amount Rs Cash A/c Dr. 35,000 To C's Capital A/c 30,000 To Premium for Goodwill A/c 5,000 (Amount of Capital and Share of Goodwill brought by C) Premium for Goodwill A/c Dr. 5,000 To A's Capital A/c 2,000 To B's Capital A/c 3,000 (C's Share of Goodwill credited to A and B in 2:3, Sacrificing Ratio) A's Capital A/c Dr. 2,000 B's Capital A/c Dr. 3,000 To Cash A/c 5,000 (Share of Goodwill withdrawn by Old  Partners)

Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

A = 3/5 - 2/4

=  [ 12 - 10]/20 = 2/20

B = 2/5 - 1/4

=  [ 8 - 5]/20 = 3/20

Sacrificing Ratio = A : B

= 2/20 : 3/20

=  2 : 3
Goodwill of the firm = Rs 20,000

C’s share of Goodwill = 20,000 x 1/4 = Rs. 5,000

A will receive = 5,000 x 2/5 = Rs. 2,000

Or 20,000 x 2/20 = 2,000

B will receive = 5,000 x 3/5 = 3,000

Or 20,000 x 3/20 = 3,000.
