Question 02 Chapter 6 of +2-A

02. From the following particulars, calculate new profit-sharing ratio of the partners: a Shiv, Mohan and Hari were partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 5 : 5 : 4. Mohan retired and his share was divided equally between Shiv and Hari. b P, Q and R were partners sharing profits in the ratio of 5 : 4 : 1. P retires from the firm.

## The solution of Question 02 Chapter 6 of +2-A: –

a

Old Ratio Shiv, Mohan and Hari = 5 : 5 : 4

 Mohan’s Profit Share = 5 14

His share is divided between Shiv and Hari equally i.e. in the ratio of 1: 1

 Share of Mohan taken by Shiv = 5 X 1 14 2
 = 5 28

 Share of Mohan taken by Hari = 5 X 1 14 2
 = 5 28

New Profit Share = Old Profit Share + Share taken from Mohan

 Shiv’s New Share = 5 + 5 14 28
 = 10 + 5 28

 = 15 28

 Hari’s New Share = 4 + 5 14 28
 = 8 + 5 28
 = 13 28

∴ New Profit Ratio Shiv and Hari = 15 : 13

b

Old Ratio P, Q and R = 5 : 4 : 1

 P’s Profit Share = 5 10

As we can see, no information is given as to how Q and R are acquiring P’s profit share after his retirement, so the new profit sharing ratio between Q and R is calculated just by crossing out the P’s share. That is, the new ratio becomes 4 : 1

∴New Profit Ratio Q and R = 4 : 1
