Working Note

WN1 Calculation of Gauri's Share of Goodwill

Value of Firm's Goodwill = 45,000

Gauri 's Profit Share = 1/3 rd

Gauri 's Share of Goodwill = 45000 xx 1/3 = 15000

WN2 Calculation of Capital brought in by Gauri

Old Ratio = 2:1

Gauri is admitted for 1/3rd share

Let Total Profit be 1

∴ Remaining Profit = `1 - 1/3 = 2/3`

Sahaj's New Profit Share =`2/3 xx 2/3 = 4/9`

Nimish's New Profit Share = `1/3 xx 2/3  = 2/9`

Gauri's Profit Share = `1/3` or `3/9`

∴New Ratio Share = 4:2:3

Adjust Old Capital of Sahaj = 150000 - 7567 = 142433

Adjust Old Capital of Nimish = 95000 - 3783 = 91217

Total Adjusted capital Sahaj and Nimish = `142433 + 91217 = 233650`

Combined Share of Sahaj and Nimish = 4/9 + 2/9 = 6/9 or 2/3

Total Capital of the New Firm = Total Adjusted Capital of Sahaj and Nimish x Reciprocal of Total Combined Share of Sahaj and Nimish

= `233650 xx 3/2 = 350475`

Gauri's Capital = `350475 xx 1/3 = 116825`
