The Ram Shyam Business Problem goes like this :

**Question :**

Ram starts a business investing Rs.60000. After 3 months, Shyam joined him investing Rs.75000. Find the ratio of Profit shared after a year.

a). 16 : 15

b). 4 : 5

c). 3 : 5

d). 11 :15

**Solution :**

This should take 10 seconds at max. Forget the thousands. Just take 60 rs for 12 months and 75 Rs for (12 – 3) = 9 months.

So that is (60 X 12 ) : (75 X 9)

= 720 : 675

Divide by 45 ( Common factor)

= 16 : 15 .

Hence the correct option is **a). 16 : 15 **
