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
