Dear Reader,

Partnership: When two or more than two persons run a business jointly, they are called partners and the deal is known as partnership.

Working & Sleeping Partners:
A partner who manages the business is known as a working partner and the one who simply invests the money is a sleeping partner.

Important formulas:

1. If the investment made by the partners is for same time, then the profit or loss is shared among the partners in the ratio of their investments.
E.g. If A & B invest Rs.x & Rs.y respectively for a year in a business, then at the end of the year,
(A’s share of Profit) : (B’s share of Profit) = x : y

2. If the investment is made for different time periods, then the gain or loss is calculated in the ratio of the equivalent capitals (i.e. equivalent capital = capital x time of investment).
E.g. If A invests Rs.x for p months & B invests Rs.y for q months, then
(A’s share of profit) : (B’s share of profit) = xp : yq

Question 1

Meena and Sonu enter into a business with capital Rs.15,000 and Rs.12,000 and they made a total profit of Rs.9,000. Find the percentage of Sonu's share.
a)Rs.4500 b)Rs.5000 c)Rs.4000 d)Rs.5500

Answer : c)Rs.4000


Meena and Sonu invested Rs.15,000 and Rs.12,000 respectively.
The ratio of their investment is = 15,000 : 12,000 = 5 : 4
Total profit is Rs.9000
Sonu's share = Rs.[4/9 x 9000] = Rs.4000
Hence the answer is Rs.4000

Question 2

Subha and her friend invested in the ratio 5 : 3 in a business. If 4% of the profit is given to charity and Subha's share is Rs.1,200 then what will be the total profit ?
a)Rs.1,000 b)Rs.2000 c)Rs.1,500 d)Rs.1,800

Answer : b)Rs.2000


Let the total profit be Rs.100.
4% of profit is for charity,
Subha's share = Rs.[(100-4) x (5/8)] = [96 x(5/8)] = Rs.60

If Subha's share is Rs.60 then the total profit = Rs.100.

If Subha's share is Rs.1,200 then total profit = Rs.[(100/60) x 1200] = Rs.2,000.

Hence the answer is Rs.2,000

Question 3

A, B, C starts a business with investment of Rs.1,00,000. C invest Rs.8,000 more than B and B invest Rs.10,000 more than A. If the total profit is Rs.70,000 then
C receives :
a)Rs.30,000 b)Rs.25,000 c)Rs.25,400 d)Rs.29,400

Answer : d)Rs.29,400

Let A's investment be X
Then, B's = X + 10,000 and C's = X + 10,000 + 8,000
Now the total investment = X + X + 10,000 + X + 10,000 + 8,000 = 3X + 28,000
From the given data, 3X + 28000 = 1,00,000
3X = 72,000
then X = 24,000.
A : B : C = 24000 : 34000 : 42,000 = 12 : 17 : 21
Then c's share = (21/50) x 70,000 = Rs.29,400
