Correct Answer - Option 3 : Rs. 29,867

Given

A invested Rs.7.000

B invested Rs.8,000

Total profit after 2 Years = Rs.56,000

Concept used

The ratio of profit share is same as the ratio of the investment

Calculation

Ratio of invested by A and B

⇒ A : B = 7000 : 8000

⇒ A : B = 7 : 8

Profit is also share in the same ratio as the investment ratio

⇒ A : B = 7 : 8

7x + 8x = 56000

⇒ 15x = 56000

⇒ x = 3733.33

Profit of B = 8 × 3733.33

⇒  Rs. 29,866.66 ≈ Rs. 29,867

∴ The profit of B (approx) is Rs. 29,867.
