The difference counts only due to 40% of the profit which was distributed according to their investments.
Let total profit = x.
40% of x is distributed in the ratio, `125000:85000=25:17`

Share of 1st partner = 40% of `x(25/(25+17))`

= 40% of `(25x)/42=40/100xx(25x)/42=(5x)/21`

Share of 2nd partner

= 40% of `(17x)/42=40/100xx(17x)/42=(17x)/105`

Now, according to the question




= ₹7875
