Working Notes

Adjusted Capital of David = 33,000

Adjusted Capital of Aslam = 70,500

Amount Payable to Naresh = 90,500

Total Capital of the New firm = Total Adjusted Capital of David and Aslam + Amount Payable

= (33,000 + 70,500) + 90,500 = 1,94,000

New Ratio = 2:3

New Capital of David = `194000 xx 2/5 = 77600`

New Capital of Aslam = `194000 xx 3/5 = 116400`
