Question

A began a business with Rs. 85,000. He was joined afterwards by B with Rs. 42,500. For how long is B in the business, if the profits at the end of the year are divided in the ratio of 3 : 1?


  1. 4 months

  2. 6 months

  3. 5 months

  4. 7 months

  5. 8 months


Solution

The correct option is E

8 months


Suppose B joined for x months.

Then, (85000×1242500×x=31)

x=(85000×1242500×3)=8

So, B joined for 8 months.
