1. Calculation of new profit share ratio

Old ratio of X & Y = 2:1
Let total profits of the firm = Re 1

Share of profit of Z=1
Remaining share (Joint share of X and Y)=11
X‘s new share=2x4
Y’s new share=1x4
Z’s new share=8  

New profit sharing ratio = 8 : 4 : 3

X=Rs. 18,000x8
 =Rs 9,600  
Y=Rs. 18,000x4
 =Rs 3,600  
X=Rs. 18,000x3
 =Rs 4,800
