Question 04 Chapter 5 of +2-A

4. A, B and C were partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 3 : 2 : 1. They admitted D as a new partner for 1/8th share in the profits, which he acquired 1/16th from B and 1/16th from C. Calculate the new profit-sharing ratio of A, B, C and D.

The solution of Question 04 Chapter 5 of +2-A

 Old Ratio of A, B and C = 3 : 2 : 1 D is admitted for 1/8th share of profit

B Sacrifice his share in the favour of D = 1/6
C Sacrifice his share in the favour of D = 1/6
In this case we don’t need to calculate the remaining share because sacrificed share of old partners is already given in the question. So we can calculate the new Profit Sharing ratio with following formula

New Ratio of Old Partners = Old Ratio – Sacrificed Ratio

 B New Profit Share = 2 – 1 6 16
 = 16 – 3 48
 = 13 48

 C New Profit Share = 1 – 1 6 16
 = 8 – 3 48
 = 5 48

 A’s Share = 3 X 8 6 8
 = 24 48

 A’s Share = 1 X 6 8 6
 = 6 48

 New Profit sharing Ratio between All partners = 24 : 13 : 5 : 6
