• 0:0:2

#### Solution

Akash, Prakash and Deepak are partners who share profits as 3:2:1. They admit Suraj as a partner and decided to share future profits as 5:3:2:2. The sacrifice ratio will be 1:1:0.

Explanation: It is calculated as follows:-
Sacrifice ratio = Old ratio – New ratio

Akash's sacrifice = 3/6 - 5/12 = 1/12

Prakash's sacrifice = 2/6 - 3/12 = 1/12

Deepak's sacrifice = 1/6 - 2/12 = 0

Therefore, Sacrificing ratio = 1 : 1 : 0
