X and Y invested in a business.
They (X and Y) divide the profit earned in the ratio 2:3.
This question is quite easy as investment of X is given i.e. Rs. 40000.
Now, ratio of profit equals the ratio of investment, it overt:
40000 : w = 2 : 3 (w stands for amount invested by “y”).
Through this equation, we can easily calculate the value of “y”.
Amount invested by y = ?
Amount invested by “y” = w
Amount invested by “x” (given) = 40000
Profit ratio (given) = 2:3
Ratio of investment = Profit ratio
40000 : w = 2 : 3
w x 2 = 3 x 40000
w = 120000/2
w = Rs. 60000 answer
X and Y invested in a business. They earned some profit with which they divided in the ratio of 2:3. If X invested Rs. 40000, the amount invested by Y is Rs. 60000.
