In a partnership business, the capital that Arav invested is double the capital that Zoya invested. The ratio of their period of investment is 12:13. The ratio of their profit is ______.
3 : 2
(Arav's investment period) : (Zoya's investment period) = 12:13 = 3 : 2
Let the multiplying factor of the ratio be z. Since, ratio of their investments is 3 : 2, Arav invested for 3z months and Zoya invested for 2z months.
Let capital of Zoya be y. Then, capital of Arav would be 2y
∴, Arav's profit : Zoya's profit = (3z) × (2y) : (2z) × (y)
⇒ 6zy : 4zy
⇒ 6 : 4
⇒ 3 : 2
