Aditi is entered into partnership for 1/6th share in future profits and contributed capital Rs.1,00,000.

Calculating the firm's capital

Firm's Capital = New Partners' Capital x Reciprocal of her share i.e.. = 1,00,000 × 6 = Rs.6,00,000

However, the total capital as at that date is Rs.4,50,000 (i.e. 2,00,000 + 1,50,000 + 1,00,000)

Difference of 1,50,000 is hidden goodwill.

Aditi's share in goodwill = 1/6th of 1,50,000 = Rs.25,000
