Assume, yearly profit be 'x', then Ram's share : Shyam's share = 5 :2 i.e. Ram's share = 5/7 x and Shyam's share 2/7 x. Now, Ram's income = 4 (Shyam's income) 5x/7 - 12,000 + 50,000 = 4(2x/7 - 50,000 + 12,000) 5x/7 + 38,000 = 8x/7 - 1,52,000 3x/7 = 1,90,000 x = 13,30,000/3 = Rs. 4,43,333. i.e. Rs. 4,40,000. Hence, 3]
That's the same thing i've done and i got the same answer.... but was confused about which choice would be correct., since it is not given amongst the choices.

Say 5 and 7. a=5 and b=7. now |5-7|=2 and |7-5| is also 2. Therefore, option 3. For any two positive numbers, this will be true. Once the absolute sign is there, then a-b and b-a will be equal.

Simple thing is that from the given conditions, a should be always less than 0. So, if b is 3 or -3 and a = -5

So b can be positive or negative but a will always be negative.
