Calculation of Tina's Share of Goodwill (Hidden)
Total capital of the firm = 16,00,000 open parentheses 4 comma 00 comma 000 space cross times space 4 over 1 close parentheses
Net worth = 4,00,000 + 6,00,000 + 4,00,000 = 14,00,0000
Hidden Goodwill = Total Capital of the firm - Net Worth
                        = 16,00,000 - 14,00,000
                        = 2,00,000
Tina's Share in Goodwill = 2 comma 00 comma 000 space cross times space 1 fourth space equals space 50 comma 000
Calculation of New PSR:
Madhu's Share = 3 over 8
Neha's Share = 5 over 8 minus 1 fourth space equals space 3 over 8
Tina's Share = 1 fourth
New Share = 3 : 3 : 2
