Answer



Working Notes:
WN1: Calculation of Sacrificing Ratio
Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio - New Ratio
straight A apostrophe straight s space equals space 3 over 6 minus 2 over 6 equals 1 over 6
straight B apostrophe straight s equals 2 over 6 minus 2 over 6 equals Nil
straight C apostrophe straight s equals 1 over 6 minus 1 over 6 equals Nil

WN2: Adjustment of Goodwill
D's Share of Goodwill equals 90 comma 000 space cross times 1 over 6 equals 15 comma 000
15,000 will be credited to A's Capital A/c, as he is the only sacrificing partner

WN3: Calculation of D's Proportionate Capital
Adjusted old Capital of A = 60,000 + 10,500 + 15,000 -4,500 = 81,000
Adjusted Old Capital of B = 40,000 + 7,000 -3,000 = 44,000
Adjusted Old Capital of C = 20,000+3,500 -1,500 =  22,000
Total Adjusted Capital= 81,000 + 44,000 + 22,000 = 1,47,000
D's Proportionate Capital = Total Adjusted Capital x D's Profit Share x Reciprocal of Combined New Share of Old Partners
equals 1 comma 47 comma 000 space cross times 1 over 6 cross times 6 over 5 equals 29 comma 4000
