Y’s Share of Reserve

 = 3,000 X 2 5 = Rs 1,200

Calculation Y’s Share of Profit

 Average Profit = Profit of last 3 year 3 = 4,200 + 3,900 + 4,500 3 = Rs 4,200

 Y’s Share of Profit (from April 01, 2019, to August 01, 2019 = 4,200 X 2 X 4 5 12 = Rs 560

Calculation of Y’s Share of Goodwill

Y’s share of Goodwill = Y’s Profit Share in last three year
Profit for last three years = 4,200 + 3,900 + 4,500 = Rs 12,600

 Y’s Share of Goodwill = 12,600 X 2 5 = Rs 5,040
