1. Calculation of new profit share ratio
Let total profits of the firm = Re 1

Share of profit acquired by C=1
Remaining share (Joint share of A and B)=11
A‘s new share=3x4
B‘s new share=1x4

New profit sharing ratio = 3 : 1 : 1
PARTNER’S CAPITALS IN THE NEW FIRM ARE = Rs. ( 30,000;10,000;10,000)



Sacrificing ratio = 1 : 1
