Working Note:
*1: -Calculation of Total Interest on Simran’s Capital, and Reema’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Capital X Rate of Interest X Period
Simran’s Capital = 2,00,000
Rate of Interest = 5%
Period = Whole year(So we don’t need to add period in the formula)
= 2,00,000 X 5/100
Total Interest on Simran’s Capital = 10,000/-
Reema’s Capital = 2,00,000
Rate of Interest = 5%
Period = Whole year(So we don’t need to add period in the formula)
= 2,00,000 X 5/100
Total Interest on Reema’s Capital = 10,000/-
*2: -Calculation of share of profit of Simran’s and Reema’s
Profit Sharing Ratio = 3: 2
Net Profit after interest = 2,80,000
= 2,80,000 X 3/5
Profit share of Simran’s = 1,68,000/-
= 2,80,000 X 2/5
Profit share of Reema’s = 1,12,000/-
