#### Quants Question

Shalini, Mahesh and Suresh enter into a partnership and their shares are in the ratio 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4. After 2 months, Shalini withdraws half of his capital and after 10 months, a profit of Rs. 378 is divided among them. What is Mahesh's share?
+

Ratio of initial investments = 1/2 : 1/3 : 1/4 = 6 : 4 : 3.

Let their initial investments be 6x, 2x and 3x respectively.

Shalini : Mahesh : Suresh = (6x * 2 + 3x * 10) : (4x * 12) : (3x * 12) = 42 : 48 : 36 = 7 : 8 : 6.

Mahesh's share = Rs. (378*8/21) = Rs. 144

Q #3

#### Quants Question

What is the maximum percentage discount that a merchant can offer on her Marked Price so that she ends up selling at no profit or loss, if she had initially marked her goods up by 50%?
+

The merchant had initially marked her goods up by 50%.

Let us assume that her cost price of the goods to be \$ 100.

Therefore, a 50% mark up would have resulted in her marked price being \$100 + 50% of \$100 = \$100 + \$50 = \$150.

The question states that she finally sells the product at no profit or loss. This essentially, means that she sells the product at cost price, which in this case would be \$100.

Therefore, she had offered a discount of \$50 on her marked price of \$150.

Hence, the % discount offered by her = 50/150 * 100 = 33.33%
