Working Notes:

Calculation of Interest on Capital

Opening Capital = Rs 1,20,000

Interest on capital=1,20,000X10X3
 =Rs 3,000    


B’s profit Share=Previses Year’s ProfitXSale till death X B’s Profit share
Previses Year’s sale

Previses Year’s Sale = Rs 98,000

Rate of Profit to Sale=Previses Year’s ProfitX100
Previses Year’s sale
Previses Year’s sale

Previses Year’s Sale = Rs 9,80,000
Sale till death = Rs 12,00,000

B’s profit Share=98,000X12,00,000X2
B’s profit Share=Rs 40,000    



Calculation of share of goodwill

Average Profit=82,,000 + 90,000 + 98,000
 =Rs 90,000

Average Profit (less 20%) = Rs 72,000
Goodwill = 72,000 X 2 = Rs 1,44,000
B’s Share of goodwill = Rs 1,44,000
