Percent profit earned by the two companies over the years. 1. If the profit earned in 2015 by the company Q was $10,000, what was the total income of the company in that year? 1.$22500
2. $20500 3.$18500
4. #16500

Answer: (a) $22500 Solution: Total investment of the company Q in the year 2015, $$= \frac{Profit \ earned}{Percent \ profit} \times 100$$ $$= \frac{10000}{80} \times 100$$ $$= 12500$$ Hence the total income, $$= 12500 + 10000$$ $$= 22500$$ 1. If the amount invested by the both companies in the year 2016 was equal, what was the ratio between total income of the companies P and Q in the year 2016? 1. 15:16 2. 16:17 3. 17:16 4. 16:15 Answer: (c) 17:16 Solution: Let the profit earned by the companies P and Q were X and Y respectvely, and total investment by the companies in the year was K, then Profit earned by the company P in the year 2016, $$X = \frac{Percent \ profit \times Investment}{100}$$ $$X = \frac{70 \ K}{100}$$ Now the profit earned by the company Q in the year 2016, $$Y = \frac{Percent \ profit \times Investment}{100}$$ $$Y = \frac{60 \ K}{100}$$ Hence the ratio between total income of the companies P and Q in the year 2016, $$= \frac{70 \ K}{100} + K : \frac{60 \ K}{100} + K$$ $$= 170 \ K : 160 \ K$$ $$= 17 : 16$$ 1. If the amount of profit earned by the company P in the year 2017 was$15,000, what was the total investment of the company in that year?

1. $18,750 2.$20,550
3. $21,850 4.$24,350

Answer: (a) $18,750 Solution: Total investment of the company P in the year 2017, $$= \frac{Profit \ earned}{Percent \ profit} \times 100$$ $$= \frac{15000}{80} \times 100$$ $$= 18,750$$ 1. If the amount invested by the companies P and Q in the year 2014 were$8,000 and $10,000 respectively, what was the total profit earned by the two companies together? 1.$10,000
2. $11,000 3.$12,000
4. $13,000 Answer: (b)$11,000

Solution: Profit earned by the company P in the year 2014, $$= \frac{Percent \ profit \times Investment}{100}$$ $$= \frac{50 \times 8000}{100}$$ $$= 4,000$$ Profit earned by the company Q in the year 2014, $$= \frac{Percent \ profit \times Investment}{100}$$ $$= \frac{70 \times 10000}{100}$$ $$= 7,000$$ Hence total profit earned by both the companies together in the year 2014, $$= 4000 + 7000$$ $$= 11,000$$

1. If the amount invested by the company Q in the year 2012 was $20,000, what was the total income of the company in that year? 1.$10,000
2. $20,000 3.$30,000
4. $40,000 Answer: (c)$30,000

Solution: Profit earned by the company Q in the year 2012, $$= \frac{Percent \ profit \times Investment}{100}$$ $$= \frac{50 \times 20000}{100}$$ $$= 10,000$$ Hence total income, $$= 10000 + 20000$$ $$= 30,000$$
