Question 16:
A,
B, C and
D are in partnership sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 36 : 24 : 20 : 20 respectively. E
joins the partnership for 20% share and A, B, C and D in
future would share profits among themselves as 3/10 :
4/10 : 2/10 : 1/10. Calculate new profitsharing ratio after E's
admission.

E is admitted for 20/100 share
Let combined share of profit of all partners after E’s admission = 1
Combined share of A, B, C and D
after E’s admission = 1 − E’s Share
=120/100
=80/100
New Ratio = Combined of A, B, C and D Agreed Share of A, B, C and D
A’s

Question 17:
Amit
and Vidya are partners sharing profits in the ratio of
3 : 2. They admit Chintan
into partnership who acquires 1/5th of his share from Amit and 4/25th
share from Vidya. Calculate New
Profitsharing Ratio and Sacrificing Ratio.
Answer:
Calculation of New Profit Sharing Ratio
Amit: Vidya=3:2 (Old Ratio)
Chintan acquires 1/5th of his share from Amit
And,
Remaining 4/5th
(1−1/5) of his share from Vidya.
If 4/5th share of Chintan =4/25
Chintan 's share=4/25×54=5/25
Amit 's sacrifice=1/5×1/5=1/25
Vidya 's sacrifice=4/25
Amit 's new share=3/5−1/25=1/5−1/25=14/25
Vidya 's new share=2/5−4/25=10−4/25=6/25
Chintan 's new share=1/5×5/5=5/25
Amit: Vidya:R=14:6:5
Sacrificing Ratio=1:4
Question 18:
Gold and Silver are
partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 2 :
5. They admit Copper on the condition that he will bring ` 14,000 as his share of goodwill to be distributed between
Gold and Silver. Copper's share in the future
profits or losses will be 1/4th. What will be the new profitsharing ratio and
what amount of goodwill brought in by Copper will be received by Gold and Silver?
Answer;

A 
B 
OLD RATION 
2 : 
5 
C is admitted for 1/4share
Let the combined share of A, B and C be = 1
Combined share of A and B after C’s admission = 1 − C’s share
=11/4
=3/4
New Ratio = Old Ratio  Combined share of A and B
A’s 
=2/7×3/4

Question 19: Vimal and Nirmal are partners in
a firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3: 2. A new partner Kailash is admitted. Vimal gives
1/5th of his share and Nirmal gives 2/5th of his
share in favour of Kailash.
For the purpose of Kailash's admission, goodwill of
the firm is valued at 75,000 and Kailash brings his
share of goodwill in cash which is retained in the business. Journalise the above transactions.
Answer:
Old Ratio of Vimal and Nirmal is 3:2
Share of Profits Kailash will get from Vimal 1/5th of his share 3/5
= 3/5×1/5=3/25
Share of Profits Kailash will get from Nirmal 2/5th of his share 2/5
= 2/5×2/5=4/25
Remaining of –
Vimal = 3/5  3/25 = 12/25
Nirmal= 2/5  4/25 = 6/25
Share of Kailash= 3/25 + 4/25=3+4/25=7/25
New Profit sharing
ratio of Vimal, Nirmal and Kailash= 12/25 : 6/25 : 7/25
Kailash brings his share of goodwill in cash =75,000 × 7/25 = 21,000
Vimal and Nirmal will
be compensated in sacrificing =3:4
Vimal =21,000×3/7=9,000
Nirmal =21,000×4/7=12,000
