Working Note:-

Calculation of Gaining Ratio

Old Ratio of X, Y, and Z = 3:2:1
Naresh retires from the firm.

New Ratio of N and S = 5:1

Gaining Ratio = New Ratio – Old Ratio

Pankaj’s Gaining Share=53


Saurabh’s Gaining Share=11


Adjustment of Goodwill

Goodwill of the firm = Rs 42,000

Naresh’s Share of Goodwill=42,000X2
 =Rs 14,000  

Pankaj’s gain = Pankaj’s gaining the share of Naresh So He will pay the whole of the amount of Naresh’s share of Goodwill
