Three business partners, Clinton, Murphy and Samson contributed $60,000, $85,000 and $105,000 respectively. They agreed to put 25% of the profit back into the business each year. They also agreed to put aside 40% of the remaining profit to cater for taxes and insurance. The rest of the profit would then be shared among the partners in the ratio of their contributions. At the end, of the first year the business realized a gross profit of $225,000. Calculate the amount of money Samson received more than Clinton at the end of the year.

Clinton, Murphy and Samson contributed $60,000, $85,000 and $105,000
22500 (100% - 25%) (100% - 40%)

= 225000 (75%) (60%)

= 168750 (60%)

= $101250 amount shared by the 3

total contributions : 60000 + 85000 + 105000

                                  = $250000

Samson : 101250 * (105000)/25000 = $42525

Clinton : 101250 * (60000)/250000 = $24300

difference : 42525 - 24300

                     = $18225

I can see that you are learning Slimwater and I'm pleases about that.

But  a 'thank you' from you on occasion would not go astray.
