## Show Answer

Solution(By Apex Team)

Total profit = Rs. 880
Since A gets 15% of total profit for management
∴ Remaining profit
$\begin{aligned}&=880-\frac{880\times15}{100}\\
&=\text{ Rs. }748\end{aligned}$
$\begin{array}{ccc}&\mathrm{A}&&\mathrm{B}\\
\text{ Amount }&5000&&6000\\
\text{ Ratio of Capital }&5&:&6\end{array}$
The remaining profit is being divided in the ratio of their capital
A’s share of profit
$\begin{aligned}&=\frac{748}{(5+6)}\times5\\
&=\text{ Rs. }340\end{aligned}$
Total profit received by A
= 340 + 132
= Rs. 472
