Shortcut 11:

\(P_1: \)\( P_2:\)\(P_3\)=\(T_1I_1: \)\( T_2I_2:\)\( T_3I_3\)

P1 : P2 : P3 = Ratio between profits
T1, T2, T3 = Respective time of investment
I1, I2, I3 = Respective investment
Question:
A started a business investing Rs. 5000. After 1 year B joined him investing Rs. 6000. After another year C joined them investing Rs. 9000. What is the ratio between their profit shares at the end of 3 years?
Answer:
P1 : P2 : P3 = 5000 x 3 : 6000 x 2 : 9000 x 1
P1 : P2 : P3 = 15000 : 12000 x 9000
P1 : P2 : P3 = 5 : 4 : 3
