# Kamal started a business investing Rs 9000. After five months, Sameer joined with a capital of Rs 8000. If at the end of the year, they earn a profit of Rs. 6970, then what will be the share of Sameer in the profit ?

A. Rs 2380

B. Rs 2300

C. Rs 2280

D. Rs 2260

**Answer: Option A **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

Now as per question, Kamal invested for 12 months and Sameer invested for 7 months.So Kamal : Sameer = (9000 × 12) : (8000 × 7)

= 108 : 56

= 27 : 14

Sameer Ratio in profit will be

$$\eqalign{ & = {6970 \times \frac{{14}}{{41}}} \cr & = {\text{Rs}}{\text{. 2380}} \cr} $$

Can you tell me,how could you get the proportion from 108:56 to(27:14)

it is not given that investment is per month,

then how kamal's total invetstment is 9000*12

and how smeer's total invetstment is 8000*7

please explain?

14 is the Smeer's proportion of money where as 27 is Kamal's money.

And, 14 +27 = 41

Smeer's Money = (total money * 14)/41.

Sameer Ratio in profit will be =(6970*14/41)=Rs 2380.

how we get this {108 : 56} from this {Kamal: Sameer = (9000*12):(8000*7)}

i can't get it

anyone please help me in this

14 is the Smeer's proportion of money where as 27 is Kamal's money.

And, 14 +27 = 41

Smeer's Money = (total money * 14)/41.

Sameer Ratio in profit will be =(6970*14/41)=Rs 2380.

Alternative,

Total profit = 6970

14x +27x = 6970

x = 6970/41 = 170

Sameer's profit = 14x = 14*170 =Rs 2380.

Can you please explain 6970*14/41 ??? I didn't get that.
