Working Notes:

WN1: Calculation of Sacrifice or Gain

Mandeep : Vinod : Abbas = 3 : 2 : 1 (Old ratio)

Mnadeep : vinod : abbas = 1 : 1: 1 (new ratio)

sacrificing (or gaining ratio) = Old ratio - new ratio

Mnadeep's share = 3/6 - 1/3 = (3-2)/6 = 1/6 (sacrifice)

Vinod's share = 2/6 - 1/3 = (2-2)/6 = 0

Abba's share = 1/6 - 1/3 = (1-2)/6 = -1/6 (gain)

WN2: Valuation of Goodwill

Goodwill = average profit x no. of years purchase

= 1,20,000 xx 3

= Rs 3,60,000

Average profit = "total profits of past years given"/"number of years"

= (1,00,000 + 1,50,000 + 2,00,000 - 50,000)/5

= Rs 1,20,000

Amount debited to abbas capital A/c = 3,60,000 xx 1/6 = Rs 60,000 (share of gain)

Amount credited to mandeep's capital A/c = 3,60,000 xx 1/6 = Rs 60,000 (share of sacrifice)
