Question

Two people invested Rs 15000 and 25000 respectively to start a business. They decided to share the profits in the ratio of their investments. If their profit is Rs 12000. How much they each get? 


Solution

A's share : B's share 
=(25000 ) : (15000 ) 

= 25 : 15  = 5 : 3 

Let A's share = 5x
B's share = 3x


According to the question,

5x +3x  = 12000

8x = 12000

X= 12000 / 8 = 1500 

There fore ,
A's  share =  5 × 1500 = 7500

B's  share = 3 × 1500 = 4500
