Let us assume the profit to be x
The profit of A will be 3/5 x
profit of B will be x – 3/5 x
x – 3/5 x = 2/5 x
∴ profit of B will be 2/5 x
Now we will find the ratio of profit
A : B = 3/5x : 2/5 x
A / B = 3/5 × 5/2
A / B = 3 : 2
270000 (This is the contribution of A)
2/3 × 270000 = 180000 (This is the contribution of B)
Hence, B invested Rs.
