Solution

Let ‘p’, ‘q’ and ‘r’ be P, Q, and R’s Capital for the business respectively.

∴ 4p = 6q = 10r

L.C.M of 4, 6, 10 = 60

∴ We take 4p = 6q = 10r = 60x

∴ p = 15x, q = 10x, r = 6x

∴ p : q : r = 15 : 10 : 6

Given that total profit = ₹ 5580,

R’s share in the profit = `6/31 xx 5580`

= ₹ 1080/-
