Question

A put in a capital of ₹ 5000 and B put in a capital of ₹ 10000 to start a company. If the profit at the end of the year is ₹ 6000, how much of the profit can A claim?
  1. ₹ 2000
  2. ₹ 3000
  3. ₹ 4000
  4. ₹ 1500


Solution

The correct option is A ₹ 2000
The ratio of A's capital to B's capital = 5000:10000 = 1:2

the profits are shared in the ratio 1:2

let A's profit be x and B's profit be 2x,

Total profit = 6000
x + 2x = 6000
x = 2000

A's profit = x = ₹ 2000
