Lesson Summary

Three business partners Atieno, Wambui and Mueni contributed Sh. 50,000, Sh. 40,000 and Sh. 25,000 respectively to start a business. After some time they realized a profit which they decided to share in the ratio of their contributions. If Mueni’s share was sh.10,000,by how much was Atieno’s share more than that of Wambui?



Text Answer


Atieno =50000
Wambui =40000
Mueni =25000
Ratio of contribution = 50:40:25
10:8:5
Profit = x
Mueni’s share = 523×X=10000
X = 10000×235= 46000
SO profit = 46000
Atieno’s share =1023x 46000 = 20000
Wambui’s share =823x 46000 = 16000
Their difference = 20000- 16000 =4000

Sh.4000
