1. X and Y invest Rs.21000 and Rs.17500 respectively in a business. At the end of the year, they make a profit of Rs.26400. What is the share of X in the profit?
Here is the answer and explanation
Answer : Option A
Ratio of the investment = 21000 : 17500 = 210 : 175 = 42 : 35 = 6 : 5
Share of X in the profit = 26400 * (6/11) = 2400 * 6 = 14400
