Correct Answer - Option 2 : Rs. 40000

Given:

A Invests (I1) = Rs. 50000

Time (t1) = 8 months

B Invests (I2) = Rs. 20000

Time (t2) = 10 months

Total profit = Rs. 60000

Formula:

Profit = Investments × time

Profit (P1)/Profit (P) = (I1/I2) × (t1/t2)

Calculation:

We know that –

Profit (P1)/Profit (P2) = (I1/I2) × (t1/t2) …….. (1)

Put all the given values in equation (1) then we get

(P1/P2) = (50000/20000) × (8/10)

⇒ (5/2) × (8/10)

⇒ 40/20

⇒ 2/1

Now,

Profit shares of A = (2/3) × 60000

⇒ 2 × 20000

⇒ 40000

The Profit shares of A will be Rs. 40000
