The solution of Question 36 Chapter 5 of +2 Part-1: – 

i)Cash A/cDr. 8,000 
 To C’s Capital A/c   8,000
 (Being cash brought by C as capital )   
ii)C’s capital A/cDr. 2,500 
 To A’s Capital A/c   1,250
 To B’s Capital A/c   1,250
 (Being C’s share of capital adjusted in sacrificing ratio
i.e. equall)

Working notes:

Calculation of hidden Goodwill: Total capital of the firm after C’s admission:
Rs.(8000+6000+8000)= Rs. 22,000

Firm’s capital taking C’s capital as a base=4X8,000
 =Rs 32,000  
Hidden Goodwill = Rs.(32,000-22,000)    
 =Rs. 10,000  
C’s share of Goodwill=4X10,000
 =Rs 2,500
