Question 6: S, B and J were partners in a firm. T was admitted as a partner in the partnership firm for 1/5th share of profits. Calculate the sacrificing ratio of S, B and J. (CBSE 2019)
Answer:
Old ratio: S:J:B=1:1:1
T is admitted
for 1/5 share
Let the total
Profit of firm be 1
Remaining share
of the SJB after T’s admission = 11/5=51/5=4/5
New share
S=4/5×1/3=4/15
S=4/5×1/3=4/15
S=4/5×1/3=4/15
T=1/5×3/3=3/15
New profit
sharing ratio of all partners S:J:B:T = 4:4:4:3
Sacrificing
ratio= Old – new
S=134/15=54/15=1/15
J=134/15=54/15=1/15
B=134/15=54/15=1/15
Sacrificing
ratio of S:J:B = 1:1:1
Question 7: P and Q were partners in a firm sharing profits in
the ratio of 5:3. R was admitted for 1/4th share in the profits, of which he
took 75% from P and the remaining from Q. Calculate the sacrificing ratio of P
and Q. (CBSE 2020)
Answer:
Old ratio of P and Q = 5:3
Share of R is 1/4th in the profits
R will take 75% From P
P will take 75% = ¾
Remaining share of Profit from Q = 1/1  3/4 = ¼
Sacrificing ratio of P and Q = 3:1
Question 8:
Kabir and Farid are partners in a firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 7 : 3. Kabir surrenders 2/10th from his share and Farid surrenders 1/10th from his share in favour of Jyoti; the new partner. Calculate new profitsharing ratio and sacrificing ratio.
Answer:
Calculation of New Ratio
Old Ratio of Kabir and Farid
7 : 3
Kabir sacrifices his share of profit in favour of Jyoti=2/10
Farid sacrifices his share of profit in favour of Jyoti =1/10
Jyoti's Share=2/10+1/10=3/10
New Ratio = Old Share − Share
Sacrificed
Kabir's New Share=7/102/10=5/10
Farid's New Share=3/101/10=2/10
New Profit Sharing Ratio = 5 : 2 : 3
Calculation of Sacrificing Ratio
Since, Kabir and Farid are
sacrificing 2/10 share and 1/10 share respectively, therefore the sacrificing
ratio becomes 2 : 1.
Question 9:
Find New Profitsharing Ratio:
(i) R and T are partners in a firm
sharing profits in the ratio of 3 : 2. S joins the firm. R surrenders
1/4th of his share and T 1/5th of his share in favour
of S.
(ii) A and B are partners. They admit C for 1/4th
share. In future, the ratio between A and B would be 2 : 1.
(iii) A and B are partners sharing profits and losses in the
ratio of 3 : 2. They admit C for 1/5th share
in the profit. C acquires 1/5th of his share from A and 4/5th
share from B.
(iv) A, B and C are partners in the ratio of 3 : 2 : 1. D joins the firm as a new partner for
1/6th share in profits. C would retain his original share.
(v) A and B are equal partners. They admit C and D
as partners with 1/5th and 1/6th share respectively.
(vi) A and B are partners sharing profits in the ratio
of 5:3. C is admitted for 3/10th share of profit half of which was gifted by A and the remaining share was taken by C equally from A and
B.

A and B are partners sharing profits in the ratio of 5:3
C’s share is 3/10^{th}
Gift by A to C = 3/10 ×1/2=3/20
Remaining half taken by C from A and B Equally
From A and B = 3/20 × ½ = 3/40
Given by A in total = 3/20+ 3/40=6+3/40=9/40

Question 10: Mahi and Rajat were in partnership sharing profits and losses in the
ratio of 4:3. They admitted Kripa as a new partner. Kripa brought `60,000 as her share of goodwill premium which
was entirely credited to Mahi's Capital Account. On
the date of admission, goodwill of the firm was valued at `4,20,000. Calculate the new profitsharing ratio of Mahi, Rajat and Kripa. (CBSE 2020)
Answer:
Kripa brought `60,000 as her share of goodwill premium
