The solution of Question 34 Chapter 2 of +2-A

:

Calculation of Interest on Kanika’s Drawing by Product Method
We will do it with the product method because of Kanika withdrawal a different amount every time.

 Date Amount(A) Period Left after(B) Product(C=A*B) 1st April 10,000 12 1,20,000 1st June 9,000 10 90,000 1st November 14,000 5 70,000 1st December 5,000 4 20,000 Sum of Product 3,00,000

Interest on Drawing = Sum of Product X Rate of Interest X 1/12

 Interest on Kanika’s Drawing = 3,00,000 X 6 X 1 100 12

Interest on Kanika’s Drawing = 1,500/-

Calculation of Interest on Gautam’s Drawing by Simple average Method
If partners withdrawal the same amount of drawing on a regular basis then we can calculate the interest on drawing with help of following formula: –
Interest on Drawing = Total Drawing X Rate of Interest X Period/12 Months
Rate of Interest = 6%
Period = the period/time will be calculated with the help of following formula: –

 Period = Time left after 1st withdrawal + Time left after Last withdrawal 2

Withdrawal at the beginning of each quarter = 15,000
It means 1st withdrawal has made on 01/04/2019
So, Time left from 01/04/2019 to 31/03/2020
are 12 Months
And last withdrawal has made on 01/01/2020
So, Time left from 01/01/2020 to 31/03/2020
are 3 Months
Now, put this time period in the formula

 Period = 12 + 3 2
 Period = 15 2
 Period = 7.5
 total Drawing = 15,000 * 4

=60,000

 Interest on Gautam’s Drawing = 60,000 X 6 X 7.5 100 12

Interest on A’s Drawing = 2,250/-

Case 2

Calculation of interest on partner’s Drawings
Withdrawal at the end of each quarter = 7,500 p.m
It means 1st withdrawal has made on 30/06/2019
So, Time left from 30/06/2019 to 31/03/2020
are 9 Months
And last withdrawal has made on 31/03/2020
So, Time left from 31/03/2020 to 31/03/2020
are 0 Months
Now, put this time period in the formula

 Period = 9 + 0 2
 Period = 9 2
 Period = 4.5
 total Drawing = 7,500 * 4

=30,000

 Interest on Ashok’s Drawing = 30,000 X 10 X 4.5 100 12

Interest on A’s Drawing = 1,125/-

Case 3

Calculation of interest on partner’s Drawings
Withdrawal at the end of each quarter = 7,500 p.m
It means 1st withdrawal has made on 15/05/2019
So, Time left from 15/05/2019 to 31/03/2020
are 10.5 Months
And last withdrawal has made on 15/02/2020
So, Time left from 15/02/2020 to 31/03/2020
are 1.5 Months
Now, put this time period in the formula

 Period = 10.5 + 1.5 2
 Period = 12 2
 Period = 6
 total Drawing = 7,500 * 4

=30,000

 Interest on Ashok’s Drawing = 30,000 X 10 X 6 100 12

Interest on A’s Drawing = 1,500/-
