Working Note:-

Old Ratio of A and B=3 : 2
C is admitted for 1/8th share of profit  

Let the total share of the business = 1
Remaining share of A and B after C’s Admission = Total Share – C’s Share

Remaining share=11


 =8 – 1 


To Calculate to New Ratio distribute the remaining share in the old ratio of old partners’


New Ratio = Combined share of A and B X Old Ratio

A’s New Ratio=7X3
B’s New Ratio=7X2
C’s New Ratio=1X5


New Profit sharing Ratio between A ,B and C = 21 : 14 : 5


Average Profit=Total Profit for past given years
Number of years
 =21,000 + 24,000 + 25,560
Number of years’ purchase=2
Goodwill=Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase
Goodwill=23,520 X 2


C’s Share of Goodwill=Firm’s Goodwill  X Share of HinaS

Sacrificing Ratio of A and B = 3 : 2

A will get Share of Goodwill=C’s Goodwill  X Sacrifice share of A




B will get Share of Goodwill=C’s Goodwill  X Sacrifice share of B

Distribution of Profit from Revaluation Account (in old ratio)

A will get=750X2


B will get=750X1
