Tina’s share = 1⁄4

Tina’s Capital = ₹  4,00,000

(a) Total capital of the new firm = 4,00,000 × 4 = 16,00,000

(b) Existing total capital of Madhu, Neha and Tina

= ₹  4,00,000 + ₹  6,00 000 + ₹  4,00,000

= ₹  14,00,000 Goodwill of the firm

= 16,00,000-14,00,000 = 2,00,000

Thus, Tina’s share of goodwill = 1⁄4 × 2,00,000 = 50,000

(b) Calculation of New Profit Sharing ratio : Madhu’s new share

= 3/8 Neha’s new share = 5/8 – 1/4
