 Particular Amount (Rs.) Particular Amount (Rs.) To Profit transferred to :            P’s Capital A/c        2,03,125            Q’s Capital A/c        1,21,875            R’s Capital A/c           75,000 4,00,000 By Profit and Loss A/c 4,00,000 4,00,000 4,00,000

Working Notes :

R's Share in Profit = 4,00,000 xx 1/8 = 50,000

Minimum Guaranteed Profitr to R = 75,000

Deficiency = 25,000 (75,000 - 50,000)

Deficiency to be borne by P and Q in the ratio of 3:2

Amount to be borne by P = 25,000 xx 3/5 = 15,000

Amount to be borne by Q = 25,000 xx 2/5 = 10,000

Remaining Profit = 3,50,000 (4,00,000 - 50,000)

Remaining Profit will be shared by P and Q in 5 : 3

P's share = 3,50,000 xx 5/8 = 2,18,750

Q's share = 3,50,000 xx 3/8 = 1,31,250

∴ P's actual  Share = 2,18,750 - 15,000 = 2,03,750

& Q's Profit Share = 1,31,250 - 10,000 = 1,21,250
