1. Partnership: When two or more than two persons run a business jointly, they are called partners and the deal is known as partnership.
Partnership is an association of two or more persons who invest their money in order to carry on a certain business. a partner who manages the business is called working partner and the partner who simply invests is called the sleeping partner.
If the period of investment is same for each partner, then the profit or loss is divided in the ratio of their investments.
The simple formula involved is (if there are two partners A and B)
Investment of A x period of investment of A = profit /loss of A
Investment of B x period of investment of B profit /loss of B
Monthly equivalent investment of A= profit /loss of A
Monthly equivalent investment of B profit /loss of B
2. Ratio of Division of Gains:
i) When investments of all the partners are for the same time, the gain or loss is distributed among the partners in the ratio of their investments.
Suppose A and B invest Rs. x and Rs. y respectively for a year in a business, then at the end of the year:
(A’s share of profit) : (B's share of profit) = x : y.
ii) When investments are for different time periods, then equivalent capitals are calculated for a unit of time by taking (capital x number of units of time). Now, gain or loss is divided in the ratio of these capitals.
Suppose A invests Rs. x for p months and B invests Rs. y for q months, then
(A’s share of profit) : (B's share of profit) = xp : yq.
3. Working and Sleeping Partners: A partner who manages the business is known as a working partner and the one who simply invests the money is a sleeping partner.
1. A, B and C started a business by investing Rs. 1,20,000, Rs. 1,35,000 and ,Rs.1,50,000 respectively. Find the share of each, out of an annual profit of Rs. 56,700.
Sol. Ratio of shares of A, Band C = Ratio of their investments
= 120000 : 135000 : 150000 = 8 : 9 : 10.
A’s share = Rs. (56700 x (8/27))= Rs. 16800.
B's share = Rs. ( 56700 x (9/27)) = Rs. 18900.
C's share = Rs. ( 56700 x (10/27))=Rs. 21000.
2. Alfred started a business investing Rs. 45,000. After 3 months, Peter joined him with a capital of Rs. 60,000. After another 6 months, Ronald joined them with a capital of Rs. 90,000. At the end of the year, they made a profit of Rs. 16,500. Find the lire of each.
Sol. Clearly, Alfred invested his capital for 12 months, Peter for 9 months and Ronald
for 3 months.
So, ratio of their capitals = (45000 x 12) : (60000 x 9) : (90000 x 3)
= 540000 : 540000 : 270000 = 2 : 2 : 1.
Alfred's share = Rs. (16500 x (2/5)) = Rs. 6600
Peter's share = Rs. (16500 x (2/5)) = Rs. 6600
Ronald's share = Rs. (16500 x (1/5)) = Rs. 3300.
3. A, Band C start a business each investing Rs. 20,000. After 5 months A withdrew Rs.6000, B withdrew Rs. 4000 and C invests Rs. 6000 more. At the end of the year, a total profit of Rs. 69,900 was recorded. Find the share of each.
Sol. Ratio of the capitals of A, Band C
= 20000 x 5 + 15000 x 7 : 20000 x 5 + 16000 x 7 : 20000 x 5 + 26000 x 7
= 205000:212000 : 282000 = 205 : 212 : 282.
A’s share = Rs. 69900 x (205/699) = Rs. 20500 I
B's share = Rs. 69900 x (212/699) = Rs. 21200;
C's share = Rs. 69900 x (282/699) = Rs. 28200.
4. A, Band C enter into partnership. A invests 3 times as much as Band B invests two-third of what C invests. At the end of the year, the profit earned is Rs. 6600. What is the share of B?
Sol. Let C's capital = Rs. x. Then, B's capital = Rs. (2/3)x
A’s capital = Rs. (3 x (2/3).x) = Rs. 2x.
Ratio of their capitals = 2x : (2/3)x :x = 6 : 2 : 3.
Hence, B's share = Rs. ( 6600 x (2/11))= Rs. 1200.
5. Four milkmen rented a pasture. A grazed 24 cows for 3 months; B 10 for 5 months; C 35 cows for 4 months and D 21 cows for 3 months. If A's share of rent is Rs. 720, find the total rent of the field.
Sol. Ratio of shares of A, B, C, D = (24 x 3) : (10 x 5) : (35 x 4) : (21 x 3) = 72 : 50 : 140 : 63.
Let total rent be Rs. x. Then, A’s share = Rs. (72x)/325
(72x)/325=720 ó x=(720 x 325)/72 = 3250
Hence, total rent of the field is Rs. 3250.
6. A invested Rs. 76,000 in a business. After few months, B joined him Rs. 57,000. At the end of the year, the total profit was divided between them in ratio 2 : 1. After bow many months did B join?
Sol. Suppose B joined after x months. Then, B's money was invested for (12 - x)
(76000 x 12)/(57000 x (12-x) =2/1 ó 912000=114000(12-x)
114 (12 - x) = 912ó12-x=8óx=4
Hence, B joined after 4 months.
7. Three partners A, B and C invest Rs 1600, Rs 1800 and Rs 2300 respectively in a business. How should they divide a profit of Rs 399?
sol: here profit is to divided in the ratio 16:18:23
A's share of profit=16/(16+18+23)x 399= Rs 112.
B's share of profit=18/(16+18+23)x 399= Rs 126
C's share of profit=23/(16+18+23)x 399= Rs 161
8..A. B and C enter into a partnership. A advances Rs 1200 for 4 months. B gives Rs 1400 for 8 months and C Rs 1000 for 10 months. they gain Rs 585 altogether. find the share of profit each?
sol: monthly equivalent of A = 1200 x 4= 4800
Monthly equivalent of B = 1400 x 8= 11200
Monthly equivalent of C = 1000 x 10= 10000
So, profit is to be divided in the ratio 48:112:100 i.e. 12:28:25
A's share of profit is (12/65)x 585=Rs108
B's share of profit is (28/65)x 585=Rs252
C's share of profit is (25/65)x 585=Rs225
