### Question

P and Q invest in a business in the ratio 9 : 17. If 5% of the profit is donated as flood relief, and P gets Rs. 2052, what is the profit?

**A**

Rs. 6240.

**B**

Rs. 6241.

**C**

Rs. 6239.

**D**

Rs. 6242.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the profit be 100. If share of P is 95 × $9/{9 + 17}$, the profit is 100. So if share of P is 2052, the profit should be 100 × ${9 + 17}/9 × 2052/95$ = Rs. 6240.
