Description : X, Yand Z enter into a partnership by investing in the ratio of 6 : 4: 8. After 1 year, Y invests another Rs. 540,000 and Z, at the end of 2 years, also invests Rs.540,000. At the end of three years, profit is ... 10. Find initial investment of Z. A) 7,20,000 B) 8,80,000 C) 6,50,000 D) 5,50,000.

**Answer** : Answer: A) Let the initial investments of X, Yand Z be Rs. 6x, Rs. 4x and Rs. 8x respectively. Then, (6x * 36) : [(4x * 12) + (4x + 540000) x 24] : [(8x * 24) + (8x +540000) x 12]=6:8:10 ... =3/4 => 864x = 432x + 38880000 => 432x = 19440000 x=90000 Z's initial investment = 8x = Rs. 7,20,000.
