Three business partners: Asha Nangila and Cherop contributed Kshs 60,000, Kshs 85,000 and Kshs 105 000 respectively. They agreed to put 25% of the profit back into business each year. Thay also agreed to put aside 40% of the remaining profit to cater for taxes and insurance. The rest of the profit would then be shared among the partners in the ration of their contributions. At the end of the first year, the business realized a gross profit of Kshs 225 000
(a) Calculate the amount of money Cherop received more than Asha at the end of the first year (b) Nangila further invested Kshs 25,000 into the business at the beginning of the second year. Given that the gross profit at the end of the second year increased in the ratio 10: 9, calculate Nangila's share of the profit at the end of the second year.
