a. Rs. 50000
b. Rs. 66000
c. Rs. 72000
d. Rs. 78000

Explanation:

Tip:
When time period is same,
Ratio of investment = Ratio of Profit

Ratio of investment of Polly to Jolly = 6:1 = Ratio of Profit
 Share of Polly in profit = 6 x 91000 = Rs. 78000 6+1

2. Three friends Mohan, Neeraj and Prateek make an equal investment in a business. Neeraj withdraws after just 5 months while Mohan withdraws 3 months after Neeraj. Only Pratik continues for a year. Find the ratio of profits of Mohan, Neeraj and Pratik respectively, if Mohan's investment was Rs. 216,800/-?

a. 4 : 7 : 1
b. 5 : 8 : 12
c. 8 : 5 : 12
d. 12 : 5 : 8

Answer: c. 8 : 5 : 12

Explanation:

Tip:
When investment is same,
Ratio of time = Ratio of Profit

Let us denote Mohan by M, Neeraj by N and Prateek by P.
Ratio of time periods of M , N and P = 8 : 5 : 12 = Ratio of Profit

3. Ronit invests Rs. 40,000/- in a car wash center and starts a business. After 4 months, Ram joins the business with an investment of Rs.50,000. At the end of the year, they make a profit of Rs. 1,87,000/-. What will be Ram's share in this profit?

a. Rs. 38800
b. Rs. 64666.67
c. Rs. 85000
d. Rs. 97000

Explanation:

Tip:
Ratio of Investment x Time = Ratio of Profit
∴ (A's investment x Time) : (B's investment x Time) = Profit of A : Profit of B

∴ (Ronit's Investment x Time) : (Ram's Investment x Time) = Ronit's Profit : Ram's Profit
∴ 40000 x 12 : 50000 x 8 = Ronit's Profit : Ram's Profit
∴ Ronit's Profit : Ram's Profit = 4,80,000 : 4,00,000 = 6:5
 ∴ Ram's Profit = 5 x 187000 = Rs. 85000 11

4. A starts a flower shop with an investment Rs. 8000. After 3 months B joins him with an investment of Rs. 16000. C joins them later with an investment of Rs. 40,000/-. The business prospers and makes a profit of Rs. 1,12,000/- at the end of the year. If profits of A, B and C are in ratio of 6 : 9 : 5, for how many months was C a part of the business?

a. 2 months
b. 3 months
c. 5 months
d. 6 months

Explanation:

Tip:
Ratio of Investment x Time = Ratio of Profit

∴ (A's investment x Time) : (B's investment x Time) = Profit of A : Profit of B

∴ Rs. 8000 x 12 months : Rs. 16000 x 9 months : Rs. 40000 x ? months = 6 : 9 : 5
∴ 96000 : 144000 : 40000 x ? = 6 : 9 : 5
By direct observation we can say, if common factor is K, then
6K = 96000;        ∴ K = 16000;       and 5K = 40000 x ?
 ∴ ? = 5K = 80000 = 2 months 40000 40000

5. Three friends A, B and C invest in a business in the ratio 6 : 4: 10 respectively. They share the profit in the ratio 8 : 7 : 9 respectively. Find the ratio of time periods of their investment.

a. 3 : 2 : 5
b. 24 : 14 : 45
c. 80 : 75 : 54
d. 85 : 105 : 74

Answer: d. 80 : 105 : 54

Explanation:

Tip:
We know that Ratio of Investment x Time = Ratio of Profit
∴ To find ratio of time just divide respective profits ratios by respective investment ratios
So if profit ratio is P1:P2:P3 and investment ratio is I1:I2:I3 then,
Time ratio is found by = (P1/I1) : (P2/I2) : (P3/I3)

6 : 4 : 10 can be reduced to 3 : 2 : 5. So, their investments are actually in the ratio 3 : 2 : 5.
 Ratio of Time periods for A, B and C is found by = 8 : 7 : 9 3 2 5
Making denominators common by multiplying by 30
 ∴ Ratio of Time periods for A, B and C = 30 x 8 : 30 x 7 : 30 x 9 = 80 : 105 : 54 3 2 5
