**Q6. Three partners invested capital in the ratio 2 : 7 : 9. The time period for which each of them invested was in the ratio of the reciprocals of the amount invested. Find the share of the partner who brought in the highest capital, if profit is Rs. 1080.**

Rs. 120

Rs. 360

Rs. 540

Rs. 420

None of these

Solution:

Ratio of capital = 2 : 7 : 9

Ratio of time = 1/2 :1/7 :1/9

∴ Ratio of investment = 1 : 1 : 1

And share of each partner = 1080/3 = 360 Rs.

Ratio of time = 1/2 :1/7 :1/9

∴ Ratio of investment = 1 : 1 : 1

And share of each partner = 1080/3 = 360 Rs.
