4.

A, B, C subscribe Rs. 50,000 for a business. A subscribes Rs. 4000 more than B and B Rs. 5000 more than C. Out of a total profit of Rs. 35,000, A receives:

 [A]. Rs. 8400 [B]. Rs. 11,900 [C]. Rs. 13,600 [D]. Rs. 14,700

Explanation:

Let C = x.

Then, B = x + 5000 and A = x + 5000 + 4000 = x + 9000.

So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000 3x = 36000 x = 12000

A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12. A's share = Rs. 35000 x 21 = Rs. 14,700. 50

 Shruthi said: (Jul 8, 2011) Can any one please explain it ?

 Ankit said: (Sep 4, 2011) 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.

 Chaitra said: (May 22, 2015) 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

 Nisha said: (May 30, 2019) As per partnership deed profit is share among partners 1:1:1, if anything is not specified than why profit is distributed among partners as their investment ratio.

 Sana Shamim said: (Dec 24, 2019) 21/50. Why 21 is divided by 50 ? How 21 came ? Please explain me ?
