Vimala and Kamala are partners, sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 4 : 3. Vinitha enters into the partnership and she acquires 1/14 from Vimala and 1/14 from Kamala. Find out the new profit sharing ratio and sacrificing ratio.

#### Solution

New Profit Sharing Ratio = Old Ratio – Sacrificing Ratio

Kamala = 3/7 - 1/14 = (6 - 1)/14 = 5/14

Vinitha = 1/14 + 1/14 = 2/14
