Can any one please explain it ? |

As the amount depend on c's investment. Hence lit's assume c investmnt is x and thn accordng to question othr' investment make and form the proportion and then by share's method it will be easy to find a's share. |

Sajitha said: (Apr 7, 2012) | |

Why we divide 21/50 in the last step. Clear my doubt. |

Anu said: (Apr 11, 2012) | |

Because total share is 50 thats why 21/50 [21+17+15=50]. |

Vaidehi said: (Mar 7, 2013) | |

Why do we have to multiply by 35000 in the last step ? |

Priya said: (Mar 23, 2013) | |

It's profit % which will distribute among all partner. |

Deepakamal said: (Oct 18, 2013) | |

@Vaidehi. Already given in the question is out of total profit of Rs. 35,000. |

Ranga Swamy said: (May 3, 2014) | |

So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000. 3x = 36000. Kindly explain this two steps? |

Sathya &Amp; Mythily said: (May 15, 2014) | |

c = x; b = x + 5000; a = x + 5000 + 4000; So, (x) + (x + 5000) + (x + 5000 + 4000) = 50000. 3x + 14000 = 50000. 3x = 50000-14000. 3x = 36000. x = 36000 / 3. x = 12000(c). c = 12000. b = 12000 + 5000 = 17000. a = 12000 + 5000 + 4000 = 21000. So, A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12. A's share = 35000 * 21/50 = Rs.14700. I hope you understood. |

Why A = x+5000+4000 taken. It is that A invests 4000 more than B? |

Masterneeji said: (Jun 6, 2015) | |

Add up investment & equate to profit in ratio: = x+x+4000+x+9000. = 3x+14000 = 50000. x = 36000/3 = 12000. A share's = 12000+9000 = 21000. |

Shimmer said: (Jun 15, 2015) | |

Please explain why can't we take it as follows: B = A-4000, C = A-4000-5000 = A-9000; I mean in terms of A. According to question: A:A-4000:A-9000. A+A-4000+A-9000 = 50000. 3A-13000 = 50000. 3A = 37000. A = 37000/3. And so on. Why isn't the answer coming correct? So, A's profit = 35000x37000. |

Ram said: (Jun 18, 2015) | |

x+x+5000+x+9000 = 50000. Where how 50000 has came? Can anyone explain me right now? |

Agnes said: (Aug 10, 2015) | |

Can any one tell me why we add x on a since they a say A subscribe 4000 more than B? |

Archana Kumari said: (Aug 15, 2015) | |

X+5000+4000+X+5000+X=50000. Can anyone explain this, how? |

Jeevaa said: (Aug 31, 2015) | |

Why A = x+5000+4000 taken. It is that A invests 4000 more than B? Can anyone explain this? |

Happiness said: (Oct 12, 2015) | |

A+B+C = 50000. Let, C = C. B = 5000+C. A = B+4000 (substitute B (i.e A = 5000+C+4000) ). RESULT: A+B+C = 50000. 5000+C+C+5000+C+4000 = 50000. 3C = 50000-14000. C = 36000/3 = 12000. B = 5000+12000 = 17000. A = 17000+4000 = 21000. A's receive = (21000/50000)*35000 = 14700 (i.e favorable outcomes of A/total outcomes)*profit. Don't know much if mistake let me know! |

Ravi Chendra V said: (Jul 12, 2016) | |

Better to calculate in this way. A = 4000 more than B B = 5000 more than C C- = ? Let's have a look. C = assume x there're c = x + ?+ b = x + 5000 + a = x + 5000 + 4000 = 50000. c = 3x + 14000 = 50000. c =3x+ 50000 - 14000. = 3x = 36000. x = 36000/3. c = 12000. Here total c is 12000. Then b = 12000 + 5000 = 17000. Then a = 12000 + 5000 + 4000 = 21000. Tatio= 12 : 17 : 21(a,b,c). Total 35000 * 21/50(12 + 17 + 21) = 50. 14700. |

Deepikarthi said: (Jul 21, 2016) | |

Please, anybody explain this sum in a shortcut. |

Mhon Arwind said: (Oct 9, 2016) | |

Please explain it in a shortcut. |

Raju said: (Nov 19, 2016) | |

Question is A's profit but answer gives hear A's share. What is it? Is they have same meaning? |

Abhishek said: (Feb 12, 2017) | |

Someone explain me the last step. |

Sajid Saifi said: (Aug 13, 2017) | |

21+17+12=50. 35000=profit, 35000*21/50. |

Sajid Saifi said: (Aug 13, 2017) | |

But the amount of B' share is not more than amount of A' share. |

Saimahesh said: (Dec 6, 2017) | |

Why we will take 21/50? Please explain. |

Abhishek said: (May 9, 2018) | |

Because the ratio of the A's share is 21/50. |

Soheli said: (May 25, 2018) | |

Here total profit has 35000. Then how came 50000? Please explain. |

Prasun Chatterjee said: (Jun 2, 2018) | |

why x+9000 be added separately |
