## Admission of a partner-Important Questions-1

**1. Calculation the new profit sharing ratio and ****Sacrificing ratio:**

**Question 1.**

Ram and Shyam are partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 3 : 2. They admit Sohan as a new partner for 1/5 share in profit. Calculate the new profit sharing ratio and sacrificing ratio.

**Solution:**

**Calculation of New Ratio:**

Let total Profit = 1

Sohan’s admitted as a new partner for 1/5 share of profit

The remaining share of Ram and Shyam = 1 – 1/5 = 4/5

Ram’s new share = 3/5 of 4/5 i.e. 12/25

Shyam’s new share = 2/5 of 4/5 i.e. 8/25

Sohan’s Share = 1/5 Or 5/25

The new profit sharing ratio of Ram, Shyam, and Mohan is :

= 12/25 : 8/25 : 5/25

= 12 : 8 : 5

**Calculation of Sacrifice Ratio:**

Sacrificing ratio =Old Ratio – New Ratio

Ram Sacrificed = 3/5 – 12/25

= 15 – 12/25

= 3/25

Shyam Sacrificed = 2/5 – 8/25

= 10 – 8/25

= 2/25

Sacrificing Ratio of Ram and Shyam = 3 : 2

**Question 2.**

Jay and Vijay are partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 3 : 2. They admit Sanjay as a new partner for 1/4 share in profit. Calculate the new profit sharing ratio and sacrificing ratio.

**Solution:**

**Calculation of New Ratio:**

Let total Profit = 1

Sanjay admitted as a new partner for 1/4 share of the profit

The remaining share of Jay and Vijay = 1 – 1/4 = 3/4

Jay’s new share = 3/5 of 3/4 i.e. 9/20

Vijay’s new share = 2/5 of 3/4 i.e. 6/20

Sanjay’s Share = 1/4 Or 5/20

The new profit-sharing ratio of Jay, Vijay, and Sanjay are:

= 9/20 : 6/20 : 5/20

= 9 : 6 : 5

**Calculation of Sacrifice Ratio:**

Sacrificing ratio =Old Ratio – New Ratio

Jay Sacrificed = 3/5 – 9/20

= 12 – 9/20

= 3/20

Vijay Sacrificed = 2/5 – 6/20

= 8 – 6/20

= 2/20

Sacrificing Ratio of Jay and Vijay = 3 : 2

**Question 3.**

A and B are partners in a firm sharing profit and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2. C is admitted for 1/5th share in profits of the firm.

Calculate new profit sharing ratio; if—

(a)C gets his share equally from A and B.

(b)C gets it from A and B in the ratio of 2 : 1.

(c)C gets it 3/20 from A and 1/20 from B.

(d) C gets it wholly from A

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

X and Y are partners sharing profit in the ratio 3 : 2. They admit Z as a new partner. X surrendered 1/4th of his share in favour of Z and Y surrendered 3/4th of his share in favour of Z.

**Calculate New profit sharing ratio X, Y, Z and Sacrificing ratio.**

**Solution:**

Old Ratio of X and Y 3:2

Z admitted as a new partner

**X surrenders** 1/4 of his share in factor of Z=1/4 of 3/5 Or 3/20

**Y surrenders** 3/4 of his share in factor of Z=3/4 of 2/5 Or 6/20

X’s New share =3/5-3/20 or 12 -3/20 = 9/20

Y’s New share =2/5-6/20 or 8 -6/20 = 2/20

Z’s share = 3/20+6/20=9/20

The new profit sharing ratio of X, Y, and Z is :

= 9/20 : 2/20 : 9/20

= 9 : 2 : 9

**Calculation of Sacrifice Ratio:**

Sacrificing ratio =Old Ratio – New Ratio

X Sacrificed = 3/5 – 9/20

= 12 – 9/20

= 3/20

Y Sacrificed = 2/5 – 2/20

= 8 – 2/20

= 6/20

Sacrificing Ratio of Ram and Shyam = 3 : 6 Or 1:2
