A. Rs 2380

B. Rs 2300

C. Rs 2280

D. Rs 2260

### 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}

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

2. 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

3. 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.

4. how we get this {108 : 56} from this {Kamal: Sameer = (9000*12):(8000*7)}
i can't get it

5. 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.

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