Question

    A and B started a business investing Rs. 3600 for ‘x’ months and Rs. 4800 for 7 months, respectively. Out of total profit of Rs. 4000, profit share of B is Rs. 2800. Find the value of x.

    A 8 months Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    B 4 months Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    C 12 months Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    D 3 months Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

    Solution

    Ratio of profit share of A to B = (3600 × x):(4800 × 7) = 3x : 28
    According to question,
    3x/28 = (4000 – 2800)/2800
    3x/28 = 1200/2800
    3x = 12
    x = 4 months
