1/4th share . Calculate the amount of goodwill premium brought by D.

Sol: Goodwill share of C= ₹ 3,00,000- 2,50,000= ₹ 50,000

Firm’s Goodwill= 50,000x10/2=₹ 2,50,000

D’s share in Goodwill= 2,50,000x1/4=62,500

Calculate the amount of capital to be brought by C.

Sol: Combined capital of A and B =  3,85,000+  4,15,000= 8,00,000

C’s Share= 1/5th of total capital

Remaining share= 1-1/5=4/5


C’s capital=  8,00,000x5/4x1/5= 2,00,000

The nominal value of debentures to be redemption/cancelled=  ₹ 5,00,000

Rekha, Sunita and Teena are partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 3:2:1. Samiksha joins the firm. Rekha surrenders 1/4th of her share; Sunita surrenders 1/3rd of her share and Teena 1/5th of her share in favour of Samiksha. Find the new Profit sharing ratio.


Rekha surrenders for Samiksha = ¼ *3/6 =3/24

Sunita surrenders for Samiksha = 1/3*2/6=2/18

Teena surrenders for Samiksha = 1/5*1/6=1/30

New share of Rekha = 3/6-3/24 =9/24

New share of Sunita = 2/6-2/18 =4/18

New share of Teena = 1/6-1/30 =4/30

Share of Samiksha = 3/24+2/18+1/30=97/360

New Ratio :- 9/24:4/18:4/30:97/360

135 :  80 :  48 : 97
