Working Notes:

Calculation of Gaining Ratio of Vishad and Roma:

Old Ratio Virad, Vishad and Roma = 5:3:2
New Ratio Vishad and Roma = 3:2
Gaining Ratio = New Ratio – Old Ratio



Vishad’s Share=33


Roma ’s Share=22

Hence, gaining ratio is 3 : 2

Calculation of Virad’s Share of Goodwill:

Goodwill of the firm = Average Profit X Number of year’s purchased


Goodwill of Firm=1,50,000X21




Share of goodwill of Virad=3,75,000X5
 =Rs 1,87,500  


Vishad will give=1,87,500X3
 =Rs 1,12,500  


Roma will give=1,87,500X2
 =Rs 75,000  


Calculation of Profit share of Virad:

Profit for the year = Rs 1,50,000

Virad’s Share of Profit=1,50,000X5X6
 =Rs 37,500    


Calculation of Interest on Virad ‘s Capital:

Interest on capital=3,00,000X10X6
 =Rs 15,000    

Virad’s share of Reserve fund:

Share of Reseve Fund=60,000X5
 =Rs 30,000
