I'm just after some help, doing some practise assessments the question is about appropriation account a profit and partner leaving.

I have the following information;

Profit before appropriation is £84000, and £48000 after deductions this is correct as per the answers.

There are 3 partners, financial year starts April.

From April - 30th June profits are A 30% B 50% and C 20%

From July - 31st March profits are B 70% and C 30% as A has left.

Working from £48000 as the profit to be distrubted can you advise what you think the answer should be please. As what I have isn't right according to my answer sheet.

Thanks
