Solution: Individually: Partners ½

2. A, B and C were partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 3 : 2 : 1. B was guaranteed a profit of Rs. 2,00,000. During the year the firm earned a profit of Rs. 84,000. Calculate the net amount of Profit / Loss transferred to the capital accounts of A and C.1

A’s Capital Account: Rs. 87,000 ½

3. H, P and S were partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 4 : 3 : 3. On August 1, 2017, P died. His 20 % share was acquired by H and remaining by S. Calculate the new profit sharing ratio. 1
Solution: Ratio of H, P and S is 4 : 3 : 3
H’s Gain = 3/10 X 20 /100 = 3 /50
H’s new share = H’s old share + H’s Gain
= 4/10 + 3/50 = 23/50 ½
S’s Gain = 3/10 X 80 /100 = 12 /50
S’s new share = S’s old share + S’s Gain
= 3/10 + 12/50 = 27/50 ½
New Profit sharing Ratio of H and S is 23 : 27
