A invested Rs.120000 for 6 months and B invested some amount for the whole year. If A received Rs. 6000 as his share out of the total profit of Rs. 9000 which A and B earned at the end of one year then what was the amount invested by B?
Suppose B invested Rs. x. Then,
A : B = 120000 * 6 : x * 12.
120000/12x : 6000/3000 or x = 120000/24 = 5000.
