Three individuals form a partnership and agree to divide the profits equally. X invests \$9,000, Y invests \$7,000, Z invests \$4,000. If the profits are \$4,800, how much less
does x receive compared to having the profits divided in proportion to the amounts invested by X, Y, and Z?

• Pre-Algebra -

So their profits should be divided in the ratio of
9 : 7 : 4

so X will get 9/20 x 4800
Y will get 7/20 x 4800
Z will get 4/20 x 4800

I will let you do the 'button-pushing'

2160

• Pre-Algebra -

X 9/20*4800= 2160
So X should get \$ 2160.00
X is receiving 2160-1600= \$560 less
