### Discussion :: Partnership

1. A starts business with Rs. 3500 and after 5 months, B joins with A as his partner. After a year, the profit is divided in the ratio 2 : 3. What is B's contribution in the capital?

2.  A. Rs. 7500 B. Rs. 8000 C. Rs. 8500 D. Rs. 9000

Explanation :

Let B's capital be Rs. x.

Then,[$$\frac { 3500*12 } {7X }$$=$$\frac {2 } { 3 }$$]

14x = 126000

x = 9000.
