Rs. 94,000: 2015 Rs. 32,000; 2016 Rs. 22,000;2017 Rs. 38,000 and 2018 Rs. 44,000.
The capital invested in the firm is 2,00,000. The fair return on capital in such type of business is 10%. Find out the value oft goodwill, based on the four years’ purchase of super profit of the last five years.

## The solution of Question 9 Chapter 3 of Class 12 Part – 1: –

 Average Profit = Total Profit Number of Years = 24,000++32,000+22,000+38,000+44,000 5 = 1,60,000 5 = 32,000

Normal Profit = 2,00,000 ×10/100 = Rs. 20,000
Super Profit = Average Profit – Normal Profit
= 32,000-20,000 = Rs. 12,000
Goodwill = Super Profit x Normal Rate of Return
= 12,000 x 4= Rs. 48,000
