Dear Student

Please note that Aman died on 30th Sep so his share would be calculated till 30th sep only not 30th Nov.
Sales for the year ended March 2007 is 10,00,000 /- and profit is Rs 3,00,000/-
Profit ratio = 30%

Date of death of aman = 30th Sep 2007

1. share of profit of aman if sales from Apr to 30th Nov = 8,00,000/-
Sales till 30th Sep = 8,00,0008×6 = 6,00,000/-
Total profit = 6,00,000 x 30% = 1,80,000/-
Share of aman = 1,80,000 x 3/6 = 90,000/-

Profit and loss suspense A/c Dr. 90,000  
  To Aman's Capital A/c     90,000
(Being amans share credited till date of his death)      

2. On the basis of time :
Sales of last year = 10,00,000/-
Based on last years sale , sale between 01-Apr to 30th sep  = 10,00,00012×6 = 5,00,000/-
Profit = 5,00,000 x 30% = 1,50,0000-
Share of aman = 1,50,000 x 3/6 = 75,000/-
Profit and loss suspense A/c Dr. 75,000
