## Study Materials for IBPS, Bank Exams : Numerical Ability/Quantitative Aptitude - Partnership

When two or more than two persons run a business jointly, they are called partners in the business and the deal between them is known as partnership.

## Partnership is of two types

- Simple Partnership
- Compound Partnership

**1. Simple Partnership:** When investments of all the partners are for
the same period of time, the profit or loss is distributed among the partners in
the ratio of their original investments.

Suppose A and B invest ` p and ` q respectively for a year in a business, then at the end of the year. Share of A’s profit (loss) : Share of B’s profit (loss) = p : q.

**2. Compound Partnership:** When investments of all the partners are for
different period of time, then equivalent capitals are calculated for a unit of
time and the profit or loss is divided in the ratio of the product of time and
investment.

Suppose A and B invest ` p and ` q for x months and y months respectively, then Share of A’s profit (loss): Share of B’s profit (loss) = px : qy.

## Partners are of two types

- (i) Working Partner, and
- (ii) Sleeping Partner

**(i) Working Partner:** A partner who manages the business is called a
working partner.

**(ii) Sleeping Partner:** A partner who only invests the money is called
a sleeping partner.
