# In How Many Months Both A and B were Together? If

A began a business with Rs.85, 000. After some time B joined with Rs.42, 500. After 12 months the profits were divided in the ratio of 3:1. For how many months both A and B were together?

- 4 months
- 5 months
- 6 months
- None of these

**Answer: (4) none of these.
Explanation:-**

Let be the A joined for X months

Then, (85000 x 12) / (42, 500 x X) = 3/1

3X = 2 x 12

X = 24/3

X = 8 months.

Hence, the answer is (4) none of these.
