## Show Answer

Solution(By Apex Team)

Let A’s capital = Rs. x
Let B’s capital = Rs. y
Now, according to the question,
$\begin{array}{rlr}A&&B\\
\text{ Capital }\rightarrow x&&y\\
\text{ Time (in month) }\rightarrow(9+1)=10&&9\\
\text{ Ratio of profit }\rightarrow5&&6\end{array}$
$\begin{array}{l}\text{ We know, }\\
\Large\frac{10\times x}{x\times y}=\frac{5}{6}\\
\Leftrightarrow\Large\frac{x}{y}=\frac{3}{4}\end{array}$
Hence the required ratio of capital of A and B is = 3 : 4
