Working Notes:
WN 1: Calculation of Y's Share of Goodwill

Goodwill of the frim = Rs 60,000

Y's share of goodwill = 60,000xx 2/3 = "Rs"  20,000

20,000 will be debited to X's & Z's capital A/c in gaining ratio of 3 : 1

X will pay = 20,000 xx 3/4 = "Rs"  15,000

Z will pay = 20,000 xx 1/4 = "Rs"  5,000

WN 2: Calculation of Y's Share of Profit

Previous yeras profit = Rs 1,50,000

Y's share of profit (till death) = previous years profit x Ys profit share x 3 months (April 01, 2017)

Y's share of profit (till death) = 1,50,000 xx 2/6 xx 3/12 = "Rs"  12,500
