Working Notes:

Calculation of Gaining/Sacrificing Ratio
 Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio ─ New Ratio

Jai = `3/5 - 1/2 = 1/10` (sacrifice)

Raj = `2/5 - 1/2 = 1/10` (gain)

Goodwill to be adjusted = 1,00,000 ─ 25,000 = 75,000

Jia's share = `75,000 xx 1/10` = 7,500 (credit, since sacrificing)

Raj's share = `75,000 xx 1/10` = 7,500 (debit, since gaining)

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
