Formula Sheet On Partnership

Definition: When two or more two persons/partners invest in a business for a certain time, to get some profit, that’s called partnership. Or When two or more people invest money in a business, persons are called Partners, their relationship is called Partnership and money/amount invested is called Capital.

Types of Partnership:

  1. If they invest money for the same time, it is called a simple partnership.
  2. If they invest money for a different time, it is called compound partnership. Types of partners:
  3. Active partner
  4. Sleeping partner

Active partner: The person, who invests his money as well as his time in the business is called an active partner.

Sleeping partner: The person, who invests only his money, not the time is called a sleeping, partner.

Note: Active partners always get a salary for managing the business, and that salary is given from the profit earned.

Important concepts:

  1. Profit is directly proportional to Time and Investments.

Profit µ Time µ Investments Profit µ (Time x Investments)

  1. If two partners A and B invest capitals CA and CB and invest their money for TA and TB time periods respectively. Then the Ratio of their respective shares in Profit:

PA : PB = (CA x TA) : (CB x TB)

  1. If two partners A, B, and C invest capitals CA, CB, and CC and invest their money for TA, TB, and TC time periods respectively. Then the Ratio of their respective shares in Profit: PA : PB : PC = (CA x TA) : (CB x TB) : (Cc x Tc)


Example 1: Three partners A, B and C invest Rs. 3000, Rs. 2400, and Rs. 3600 respectively in a company. How should they divide a profit of Rs.1800?


Since there is no time period given, we can say that profit is proportional to the investments made by A, B, and C respectively.

Ratio of Profit Distribution = Ratio of Investments

= A : B : C = 3000 : 2400 : 3600

= A : B : C = 5 : 4 : 6

So, the total profit is 5 + 4 + 6 = 15 i.e. equal to Rs. 1800. Share of A = (5/15) x 1800 = Rs. 600

Share of B = (4/15) x 1800 = Rs. 480 Share of C = (6/15) x 1800 = Rs. 720


Example 2: In a company, A invested Rs. 3000 for 4 months and B invested Rs. 2400 for 6 months and C invested Rs. 7200 for 2 months. If company has a profit of Rs. 1360. What will be the share of A, B, and C?


Here, profit is proportional to the time period and the investments made by A, B, and C respectively.

Ratio of Profit = A : B : C = (3000 x 4) : (2400 x 6) : (7200 x 2)

= A : B : C = 60 : 72 : 72

= A : B : C = 5 : 6 : 6

Total profit = 5 + 6 + 6 = 17 i.e. equal to Rs. 1360

We can say, 17 = 1360

And 1 = 80

So, Share of A = 5 which means 5 x 80 = Rs. 400 Share of B = 6 which means 6 x 80 = Rs. 480 Share of C = 6 which means 6 x 80 = Rs. 480.

Example 3: P is an active partner in a partnership. P invests Rs. 2500 and Q invests Rs. 3000. P received 15% of the profit for managing the business and the rest is divided in proportion to their capitals. The amount received by P out of the profit of Rs. 1760 is: Solution:

Total profit = Rs. 1760

P receives 15% of total profit for being an active partner. Thus, Remaining profit = 1760 x (85/100) = Rs.1496


Capital Rs. 2500 Rs. 3000

Ratio of Capital 5 : 6

The remaining profit will be divided in the ratio of capital invested. Share of P in Profit = (1496/(5+6)) x 5 = Rs. 680

Thus, Total profit of P in business = 680 + 264 = Rs. 944
