But P's share is given. So we can calculate the value of x by using 12000*8/(12000*8+8000*12+9x) = 6000. |

Please give clear explanation. How can write 1200000*8 and 80000*12? |

Harshit Dahiya said: (Dec 27, 2013) | |

Answer should be A. Since, the profit of P is given we can find out x i.e, R's investment. Please reconsider your explanation. |

Heisenberg said: (Jan 3, 2014) | |

Answer could not be found because both the duration of investment and the amount invested by R is not given. |

Ritika said: (Sep 29, 2014) | |

Why we multiply 120000*8 and 80000*12 and x*9? |

Kanhaikumarsingh123@Gmail.Com said: (Dec 12, 2014) | |

Answer should be A, because profit of is given and value of x is easily calculated. |

Dean said: (Apr 13, 2015) | |

None of these. Because using 2 & 3 as well as using 1, 2 & 3 we can reach the answer. So option E, not because of inadequate of data but of other options are not suitable. |

Please give clear explanation. |

Sumit said: (Aug 2, 2015) | |

Consider a 1 year investment and you can easily find out x by the equation discussed above. So answer should be (A). |

Amit said: (Aug 16, 2015) | |

How total time period is assumed one year as it was mentioned in the question? |

Milu Sahu said: (Nov 14, 2015) | |

How to calculate? |

Sharma Ak said: (May 3, 2016) | |

It's confusing. How to find the solution? |

Ari said: (Aug 30, 2016) | |

Answer is A. As we can calculate x from given share of p. As x is the only unknown variable here. |

Amaresh said: (Sep 4, 2016) | |

Given answer is correct. Profit percentage also depends on the duration of investment which is not given. So we cannot calculate the required thing. |

Nilu said: (Sep 10, 2016) | |

P joining after 4 months so in 12 months - 4 months he gets 8 months profit. Likewise, Q gets 12 months and R gets 9 months profit. |

Santhu said: (Sep 6, 2017) | |

They did not give time period, how can you assume its one year? |

Shailesh said: (Dec 2, 2017) | |

Answer must be A. |

Rishi said: (Feb 23, 2018) | |

I am not getting this! Why you multiple 12000 by 8? |

Wrick said: (Nov 12, 2018) | |

Here, Total profit is not mentioned so the answer can't be determined. |
