Surabhi, Simona and Shruti started a business in a partnership by investing ₹ 60,000, ₹ 40,000 and ₹ 75,000 respectively. At the end of the year they found that they have incurred a loss of ₹ 24,500. Find that how much loss each one had to bear?

#### Solution

Invested by Surabhi = Rs 60,000

Invested by Simona = Rs 40,000

Invested by Shruti = Rs 75,000

Time = 1 year

Loss = Rs 24,500

Loss will be distributed to the capitals invested, in the proportion-

60,000 : 40,000 : 75,000

i.e 60 : 40 : 75

i.e 12 : 8 : 15

Now, 12 + 8 + 15 = 35

Loss incurred by Surabhi = `12/35 xx 24500`

= Rs 8,400

Loss incurred by Simona = `8/35 xx 24500`

= Rs 5,600

Loss incurred by Shruti = `15/35 xx 24500`

= Rs 10,500
