Let P be the total profit.

salary\: of \: A = 40P/100

Total \: share \: of\: A = \left ( 40P/100 \right ) + 2100

Total \: Share \: of\: B = 2100 \: which \: means \: 30% of \: P = 2100

P=Rs. 7000

the\: share \: of \: A = 2100+2800=4900

Had the profit been divided in the ratio of their investment,

the \: share \: of\: A = 4900-900= Rs. 4000

Hence \: share\: of\: B= Rs. 3000

Hence \: A/45000 = 4000/3000

A \: equals\: to\: 60,000
