## Show Answer

Solution(By Apex Team)

30% of the total profit is divided in the ratio 50000 : 70000 = 5 : 7 between the two partners.
Suppose x = 30% of the total profit.
Then,
$\begin{aligned}&x\times\frac{7-5}{7+5}=90\\
&x\times\frac{1}{6}=90\\
&x=540\end{aligned}$
30% of the total Profit = 540
$\begin{array}{l}
\text { Total Profit }\\
=\Large\frac{540 \times 100}{30}\\
=1800
\end{array}$

**Alternate Solution:**From the 30% of the profit, let first partner gets x and second partner gets (x + 90) $\begin{array}{l} x:(x+90)=50000: 70000\\ x:(x+90)=5: 7\\ 7 x=5 x+450\\ 2 x=450\\ x=225\\ \therefore 30 \% \text { of the profit }\\ =x+x+90\\ =225+225+90\\ =540 \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{l} \text { Total Profit }\\ =\Large\frac{540 \times 100}{30}\\ =1800 \end{array}$## Related Questions On Partnership
