Question

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 9 : 19. After 6 months their investments became in the ratio 19 : 9. What is A's share in the annual profit of Rs. 8400?

A

Rs. 4200.

B

Rs. 4300.

C

Rs. 4100.

Soln.
Ans: a

The money months contributed by A are 6 × 9 + 6 × 19. The money months contributed by B are also same: 6 × 19 + 6 × 9, so their share would be equal. A's share = 8400/2 = Rs. 4200.
