What is Partnership and How to solve Partnership Questions?

In this post, we will discuss What is Partnership and Solve Partnership Questions using Formulas to save time in Bank Exams
Partnership Questions

Partnership Questions are one of the most important questions that appear in Bank Exams. Partnership Questions are based on the concept of ratio and proportion. Often partnership questions ask you to find the share of profit of individuals. These questions are logic based questions which can be easily solved with the help of formulas. If you understand the term partnership then, you can easily solve partnership questions by just using formulas.

In this post, we will discuss, What is Partnership? Formulas to solve partnership Questions and few solved examples using partnership formulas to save time in Bank Exams.

What is Partnership?
A partnership is a type of business organisation where two or more individuals come together – Pool money, skills, resources, share profit and losses.

For example: A and B started a business with an investment of Rs.1,00,000 each. This means that A and B are 50% partners and they share their profit and loss equally.

Formulas to solve Partnership Questions
Partnership questions generally ask you to find the profit share of the different people.

Let us assume there are two people A and B and they have come together to run a business. To start a business they need to invest. So, both of them invest 1.5 lakh each. At the end of the year when profits are divided among them, they are divided equally because a person's profit is directly proportional to the investment and profit is directly proportional to the time period. 
Partnership Questions
Partnership Questions
Hence, Profit is directly proportional to the product of Investment and Time Period.
Partnership Questions
To find the ratio of profit shares, 
Partnership Questions
If there are three partners, then the ratio of their shares of profit will be denoted as 
Partnership Questions
Example 1: Partnership Questions

Question: Meena started a business investing Rs 12000. After 5 months, Abhay joined her with a capital of Rs.9000. At the end of the year, the total profit was Rs.4416. What is the share of profit of Meena?
Step 1:
Investment of Meena = I= Rs.12000
Time period = T1 year i.e. 12 months
Investment of Abhay = I= Rs.9000
Time Period = T12 – 5 = 7 (Since he joined 5 months late)
Total Profit = Rs.4416

Step 2:
To find the ratio of share of profits of Meena and Abhay, we use the formula
PM : PA = IM x TM : IA x TA

Step 2:
By substituting the values  in the formulas
12000 x 12/ 9000 x 7
= 16/7

Step 3:
From the ratio, we find Meena's share of profit
PM = 16/(16 + 7) x 4416
= 3072

Therefore, Meena's share of profit is Rs.3072.

Example 2: Partnership Questions

Question: Pankaj and Nitin started a business by investing Rs.4200 and Rs.5700 respectively, but Nitin left the business after 8 months. Find the difference between the share of profits of Pankaj and Nitin, if the total profit at the end of the year was Rs.26000.

Step 1:
Investment of Pankaj = Ip = Rs. 4200
Time period = T= 1  year i.e. 12 months
Investment of Nitin = IN= Rs.5700
Time Period = TN = 8 months
Total Profit = Rs.2600

Step 2:
PP : PN= Ip x Tp : IN x TN

Step 3:
By substituting the values in the formula
PP: PN = 42000 x 12 : 57000 x 8
PP: PN = 42 x 12 : 57 x 8
PP: PN = 21 : 19

Step 4:
To calculate the difference between the share of profit we take the difference in their ratios with the total ratio and multiply it with the total profit.
21 - 19 = 2 (Difference in the ratio)
21 + 19 = 40 (Total ratio)

Step 5:
2/ 40 x 26000 = 1300

Therefore, the difference between their shares of profit is Rs.1300.
Partnership Questions
Example 3: Partnership Questions

Question: Sarita started a business investing Rs.50000. After 6 months, Abhishek joined her with Rs.75000. After another 6 months, Nisha also joined them with Rs. 1.25 lakh. What should be the ratio in which the profit is shared by the 3 people respectively at the end of 2 years?

Step 1:
Investment of Sarita = IS = Rs.50000
Time period =TS 24 months
Investment of Abhishek =IA Rs.75000
Time period = T18 months
Investment of Nisha =IN = Rs.1.25 lakh
Time period = TN = 12 months

Step 2:

PS:PA:PN =  IS x TS : IA x TA : IN x TN

Step 3:
PS:PA:PN = (50,000 x 24) : (75000 x 18) :  (125000 x 12)

Step 4:
By simplification,
8: 9: 10

Therefore, 8: 9: 10 is the ratio in which profit is shared between Sarita, Abhishek and Nisha respectively at the end of 2 years.

Example 4: Partnership Questions

Question: Subash started a business by investing Rs.25000. 6 months later Aditya joined him by investing Rs.15000. After another 6 months, Aditya invested an additional amount of Rs15,0000. At the end of 3 years, they earned a profit of Rs.2,47,000. What is Aditya's share?

Step 1:
Investment of Subhash =IS 25000
Time period = Tyears
Investment of Aditya =IA1 = 15000
Time period = TA1 30 months
Investment of Aditya = IA2 15000
Time period = TA2 24 months  

Step 2:
PS : PA = IS x TS : [ (IA1 x TA1) +  IA2 x TA2]   

Step 3:
S : A = (25000 x 36) : (15000 x 30 + 15000 x 24)
= 30: 27
= 10: 9

Step 4:
Aditya’s share = 9/19 x 2,47,000 = 1,17,000

Therefore, Aditya’s share of Profit at the end of 3 years = 1,17,000

3 Tips to Solve Data Interpretation Questions on Caselets

In this post, we will discuss Tips and Tricks to solve Data Interpretation Questions that are asked on Caselets in SSC Exams.
Data Interpretation Questions on Caselets
Caselets is an important part of data interpretation on which questions are asked frequently in SSC Exams. Caselets from data interpretation carry 5 marks in exams. These 5 marks can be easily scored in the least time if you know the smart approach. In this post, we will discuss tips and smart approach towards data interpretation questions that are asked on caselets. Before moving further let’s revise basics of data interpretation.
Data Interpretation Questions on Caselets
What are Caselets?
Caselets are paragraphs in which complete information is presented in the form of sentences. The data is in the raw form and questions are asked on its basis. Before solving questions on caselets, data has to be extracted from the paragraph. The length of the paragraph may vary from short to medium in length. Sometimes, caselets are combined with other sources of data such as tables, graphs etc.
The only disadvantage of caselets over other data interpretation questions is that we need to analyse the paragraph and the questions carefully before answering them.

3 tips to solve Data Interpretation Question Asked on Caselets

➤Read the caselets and associated questions carefully before directly jumping to solve them.
➤Arrange the data in an order to have a better understanding towards them.
➤Underline the important sentences while reading the paragraph because it will help you to draw conclusions easily.

Example: Data Interpretation Questions on caselets

A school has 400 students- boys and girls, who are in the ratio of 3:5. The students speak Hindi, English or both the languages. 12% of the boys speak only Hindi, 22% of the girls speak only English, 24% of the total students speak only Hindi and the number of boys speaking both the languages is six times the number of boys speaking only Hindi.

1)    How many boys speak Hindi?
2)    How many girls speak only Hindi?
3)    How many students speak English?
4)    The number of girls speaking only Hindi is what percent of the total number of students speaking only Hindi?
5)    What is the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls speaking both the languages

Information analysis –
Total Number of students = 400
Ratio of boys and girls; B: G = 3: 5
Number of boys = 3/8 x 400 = 150
Number of girls = 5/8 x 400 = 250
Organise the data in a systematic order. Here, we have arranged them in a form of table. 

Only Hindi
Only English
Both the languages
Number of Boys(150)
12% of 150 = 18
150 – 18 – 108 = 24
6 x 18 = 108
Number of Girls (250)
96 – 18 = 78
22% of 250 = 55
250 – 78 – 55 = 117
Total number of students
24% of 400 = 96

Question 1: How many boys speak Hindi?
Step 1:
In this question, we need to calculate the percentage of boys who speak Hindi. It means that we need to calculate the percentage of boys who speak only Hindi and boys who speak Hindi + English.

Step 2:
Number of boys who speak only Hindi = 18
Number of boys who speak Hindi + English = 108
18 + 108 = 126

Therefore, the number of boys who speak Hindi are 126

Question 2:  How many girls speak only Hindi?
Step 1:
In this question, we need to calculate the number of girls who speak only Hindi.
From the table above, we get to know that number of girls who speak only Hindi are 78.

Therefore, the number of girls who speak Hindi are 78.

To have an edge over data interpretation questions, practice more questions from data interpretation.
Data Interpretation Questions on Caselets
Question 3: How many students speak English?
Step 1:
In this question, we need to calculate the number of students who speak English. So we subtract the number of students who speak only Hindi from the total number of students
Total number of students – Number of students who speak only Hindi
400 – 96 = 304

Therefore, the number of students who speak English are 304.

Question 4: The number of girls speaking only Hindi is what percent of the total number of students speaking only Hindi?
Step 1:
Number of girls who speak Hindi – 78 [x]
Total number of students who speak only Hindi – 96 [y]
As we need to find the percentage change we know that
x/y x 100

Step 2:
78/96 x 100

Therefore, 81.25% is the percentage change.

Question 5:  What is the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls speaking both the languages?
Step 1:
Number of boys speaking both the languages = 108
Number of Girls speaking both the languages = 117
The ratio of the number of boys who speak both the languages: Number of girls who speak both languages
= 108: 117

Step 2:
By further simplification we get,

Therefore, the ratio of boys is to girls who speak both the languages are 12:13.
