## Ques 1.

P and Q start a business by investing 5,000 and 10,000 respectively . Find the ratio of their profit after 2 years ?

**Solution :**

Ratio = 5000*2 : 10000*2 = 1:2

## Ques 2.

P and Q jointly started a business . The investments of P is equal to 3 times the investment of Q . Find the share of P in annual profit of 10,400.

**Solution :**

Share of P = 3x

Share of Q = x

==> 3x+x =10,400

==> 4x = 10,400

==> X = 2,600

P's share = 3*2600 = 7800

## Ques 3.

P and Q invested 24000 and 8000 for a period of 2 years . After 2 years , they earned 36000 . What will be the shares of P and Q out of this earning ?

**Solution :**

Profit ratio = 24000 : 8000 = 3:1

P = (3*36000)/4 = 27,000

Q = 36000-27,000 = 9,000

## Ques 4.

P starts business with 3000 and P joins him after 3 months with 9000 . Find the ratio of their profits at the end of the year ?

==> P:Q:R = 36000 : 45000 : 30000

==> P:Q;R = 36:45:30 = 12:15:10

## Ques 7.

P,Q and R invested capital in the ratio of 2:3:5 . At the end of the business terms , they received the profit in the ratio 5:3:12 . Find the ratio of time for which they contributed their capitals ?
