Q1) A and B are partners sharing profits in the ration of 4 : 3. C is admitted as a partner. The new profit-sharing ration is 3 : 2 : 1. Find out the sacrificing ratio. (Marks 2)
Ans1) A : B : C
3 : 2 : 1 New Ratio
Old ratio = A : B
4 : 3
A’s sacrifice = A’s old share – A’s new share
= 4/7 – 3/6 = 3/42
B’s sacrifice = 3/7 – 2/6 = 4/42
Thus, the sacrificing ratio = A : B
= 3 : 4
