Q.  In what ratio should the profit of Rs.8000 be divided if X starts a business with an investment of Rs. 20000, Y invests Rs.7500 for 4 months and Z invests Rs.15000 after 3 months from the start of the business.

a. 16 : 2 : 3
b. 8 : 3 : 6
c. 16 : 2 : 9
d. 6 : 9 : 1


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Let the profit of X be P1, that of Y be P2 and of Z be P3.
P1:P2:P3 = 20000*12 : 7500*4 : 15000*9 = 240 : 30 : 135 = 80 : 10 : 45
= 16 : 2 : 9
