(1) Express the ratio of the initial investments in simplest form.
(2) How much will each businessman receive by way of profit?

Result

r = (Correct answer is: 2:3:1) Wrong answer
p1 =  200000
p2 =  300000
p3 =  100000

Step-by-step explanation:

a=50000 b=75000 c=25000  50000=2455 75000=23355 25000=2355 GCD(50000,75000,25000)=2355=25000  k=GCD(a,b,c)=GCD(50000,75000,25000)=25000  a0=a/k=50000/25000=2 b0=b/k=75000/25000=3 c0=c/k=25000/25000=1  r=2:3:1
p=600000 p1=p 22+3+1=600000 22+3+1=200000
p2=p 32+3+1=600000 32+3+1=300000
p3=p 12+3+1=600000 12+3+1=100000
