      Vivek’s Capital A/c            3,00,000

Working Notes :

Vandana's Share in Profit = 9,00,000 x (1/8) = 1,12,500

Minimum Guaranteed Profit to Vandana = 1,50,000

Deficiency = 37,500 (1,50,000 - 1,12,500)

Deficiency to be borne by Vikas and Vivek in the ratio of 2:3

Amount to be borne by Vikas = 37,500 x (2/5) = 15,00

Amount to be borne by Vivek = 37,500 x (3/5) = 22,500

Remaining Profit Share = 7,50,000

 Vikas's Profit Share = 7,50,000 x (3/5) = 4,50,000

& Vivek's Profit Share = 7,50,000 x (2/5) = 3,00,000
