Working Note:

Gaining Ratio = New Ratio - Old Ratio

Kavi = `3/5 - 3/8`

= `(24 - 15)/40`

`= 9/40`

Ravi = `1/5 - 2/8`

`= (8 - 10)/40`

`= 2/40 ("sacrificing")`

Kumar = `1/5  2/8`

`= (8 - 10)/40`

= `-2/40` (sacrificing)

Goodwill Valued = 360000

kavi = Rs `360000 xx 9/40 = Rs  81000`

Ravi = `Rs 360000 xx 2/40 = Rs 18000`

Kumar =  `Rs 360000 xx 2/40 = Rs 18000`

Guru = `Rs 360000 xx 1/8 = Rs  45000`
