Quantity a is greater.-ans: a (the share in profit will in proportion to the total investment by each. let susan invested $a initially every month. she would invest $a every month for 4 months. after 4 months, she would invest (a (�)a) = 3/4 a every month for 4 months. finally, she would invest 3/4 a 1/2 of 3/4 a = 3/8 a. so susans total investment in one year = 4xa + 4x3/4 a + 4x3/8 a = 17/2 a. now lucys contribution = 10 x 0.9 (3/8 a) = 27/8 a. (90% of susans last month contribution (3/8 a)). the share in profit of susan & lucy = (17/2) a : (27/8) a = 68 : 27 ((17/2) a / (27/8) a). hence quantity a is greater.)
