4.Vrushabh started a business with Rs.25000 and after 4 months, Vinay joined him with Rs.60000. Vrushabh received Rs.58000 including 10% of profit as commission for managing the business. What amount did Vinay receive?
A. 75000
B. 72000
C. 78000
D. 70000
Answer: Option B

Ratio of the profits of Vrushabh and Vinay =25000×12:60000×8=5:8

Let the total profit =T
Then Vrushabh received 10T/100= T/10 as commission
Remaining profit =T-T/10=9T/10 which is shared in the ratio 5:8
Total amount received by Vrushabh = T/10 +(9T/10 x 5/13)
T/10 +(9T/10 x 5/13)=58000
Vinay's share =130000-58000=72000
