#### Solution

(a) Calculation of R’s Share of Goodwill
Profit credited to R’s Capital Account in 4 years = Net profit for last four years × R’s Share

=(1,20,000 + 80,000 + 80,000 + 4,000) xx 3/8

= 3,20,000 xx 3/8 = "Rs" 1,20,000

"R's share of goodwill" = 1/2 xx ("profit credited R's capital acccount in 4 years")

= 1/2 xx 1,20,000

= "Rs" 60,000

(b)

Journal

 Particulars L.F. Debit Amount Rs Credit Amount Rs P’s Capital A/c Dr. 48,000 S’s Capital A/c Dr. 12,000 To R’s Capital A/c 60,000 (R’s share of goodwill adjusted)

Working Notes:

R’s Share of Goodwill = Rs 60,000

Old Ratio (P, R and S) = 4 : 3 : 1

R died.

∴ Gaining Ratio = 4 : 1

This share of goodwill is to be distributed between P and S in their gaining ratio (i.e. 4 : 1)

"P's share in goodwill" = 60,000 xx 4/5 = "Rs" 48,000

"S's share in goodwill" = 60,000 xx 1/5 = "Rs" 12,000
