How can you take here 7? |

Soma said: (Jul 14, 2010) | |

7 is the number of months B was in business, remember B joined after 5 months. 12 - 5 =7 months gotcha?? |

Dinesh said: (Apr 27, 2011) | |

A's share in 12 months=3500*12 B's share in 7 months=7x |

Sandy said: (Aug 15, 2011) | |

Can you explain how can we take 7x? |

Sushma said: (Aug 17, 2011) | |

7 is the number of months where B joined and X is capital he brought. |

Pradeep said: (Nov 12, 2011) | |

If A starts with 3000, after 6 months B joined with A with 5000, after 1 yr. total profit is 8000. then how much can get A&B ? |

Soumya said: (Jun 24, 2013) | |

A : B. 3500 : X.....INVESTMENT. 12 : 7.....MONTHS INVESTED. 2 : 3.....PROFITS SHARED. So the ratio of investment should be equal to the profits shared. 3500*12 : 7*x :: 2:3. x = 9000. |

Pradeep Singh said: (Feb 24, 2014) | |

Here its not specified if- A invested 3500 as complete investment or Rs 3500/month for 12 year. How how can we write 3500*12 for A's investment? |

Krishna Kondekar said: (Jul 9, 2014) | |

If "B" is invested equal contribution of "A" in this session this type question will not be raised. Then it will arise question as on profit as like how much profit get the A&B ? |

Murali said: (Jul 15, 2014) | |

Why did you write 7 there but there it was mension 5 months? |

Murugan.M said: (Oct 8, 2014) | |

@Murali, they mentioned as after 5 months B is joined with A. 12 months -5 months = 7 months. |

Sudharsan T (Madurai) said: (Dec 6, 2014) | |

Solve of 3500*12/7 = 6000. 6000*3/2 = 9000. |

Vishwadip said: (Jan 29, 2015) | |

A invests 3500 Rs for 12 months (Why 12 - because profit is given of 1 year) in the ratio of 2. B invests X Rs for 7 months (Why 7 - because B joins A after 5 months and profit is given of 1 year) in the ratio of 3. 3500*12+X*7 = 2/3. 42000+7X = 2/3. 7X = 3/2*42000. X = 9000. |

Sukumar Satyen said: (Jun 11, 2015) | |

Following is Correct explanation:- A's investment was Rs. 3500 for one-time. It was NEVER recurring for 12 months, i.e., Rs. 3500*12 months is wrong. It is assumed that B's investment was Rs. x for one-time. It was never recurring for 7 months, i.e., Rs. x*7 months is wrong. Ratio of profit is given for 1 year. Therefore, we need to express investments in terms of years, not in terms of months, so that investment ratio has equitable. Now, A's share for 12 months (1 year) = Rs. 3500*12/12 = Rs. 3500. B's share for 7 months (7/12 year) = Rs. x*7/12. Ratio of Investment should be equal to ratio of profits. => 3500:X*7/12 = 2:3. => 3500*12/7X = 2/3. => 3500*12*3/(7*2) = x. => x = Rs. 9000 = B's contribution in the capital. Thanks. |

Prakash said: (Jan 3, 2016) | |

Don't you think that B's total investment should be 7*9000? Because we have to find B's total contribution. Please tell me. |

Chandana said: (Mar 7, 2016) | |

How can we take 7 and 12? As b joined 5 months and after 1 year of joining of b, profit is calculated. So we should take (12+5=17) and 12 for a, b respectively. As in the previous online tests. This is the process which gave answer. |

Naveen said: (Jul 4, 2016) | |

3500*12 = 42000 is ratio 42000/2 = 21000, 1 = 21000 then 3 ration will 63000 for 12 months, 63000/7months = 9000, Total investment of B is 9000. |

Sachin Patel said: (Jul 15, 2016) | |

Thank you all for giving clear solution. |

Ramesh said: (Jul 23, 2016) | |

@Pradeep. A'share is: 4363. B'share is: 3636. |

Caue Rego said: (Oct 3, 2016) | |

Well explained @Sukumar. |

Farhan said: (Dec 3, 2016) | |

A, B, C started a business with the ratio of 2:3:4 respectively. A took his money after 9 month. Then calculate the share of each in profit of 35000 at the end of the year? Give me the Solution. |

Mir Rokon Uddin said: (Jan 9, 2017) | |

Let; B's capital is x. According to question, 3500 * 12: 7 * x = 2 : 3. So, X = 900. |

Liton Chandra Dhaki said: (Jul 25, 2017) | |

A & B start a buisness with Rs 240000 and Rs 300000 respectively. After 4 months C joins with them with Rs 81000 which is withdrawn by A & B according to their capital's ratio. At the end of the year profit is Rs 39150. Find the parts of profit received by A, B and C. Can anyone solve this? |

Ranjan said: (Aug 11, 2017) | |

Let; B's capital is x. Then 3500 * 12:7x. 42000 : 7x ::2:3. 6000:x::2:3=6000/x=2/3. x = 9000. |

Mir Rokon Uddin said: (Sep 24, 2017) | |

@All. If you consider B's initial investment answer would be 9000. If you consider B's total investment answer would be 7*9000=63000. So the word "initial should have added in the asking term. Generally, B's investment means a total investment of B. So to me answer is 63000. |

D Priya said: (Feb 12, 2018) | |

@ Rokon Uddin. They coined the term capital in the question. So, it's obviously clear they are asking investment amount. Not the total amount. |

Tirth said: (Sep 23, 2018) | |

First of the After a year write a question is 12 is month wise. 3500*12/7x = 2/3. By cross multiplying, we get; 3500*12=4200 multiple by 3 (42000*3)= 126000. 7 multiple by 2 (7*2) =14. Then 126000/14 = 9000 is the answer Answer. |
