80000 X 24% = 19200. is the Interest which Y must have taken & arrived at Profit of 6000/-, So total Profit Before Interest would be 25200.  Now what you do is calculate 12% on 80000/- i.e 9600/- Now deduct 9600/- from 25200/- i.e 15600/- Amt of profit after Interest available to partners for distribution ( assuming there is No adjustment given for Income Tax )

I hope now it must have become very clear with you.

.If there is no agreement regarding the rate of interest, it is taken as 6% p.a. hence interest on loan = 80000*6%= 4800 and profit after interest = 6000-4800 = 1200

As per Partnership Act, when there is no mention about interest to be paid to partners, such interest cannot exceed 6%. Accordingly Y can demand interest only to the extent of 6%.

After payment of 6% interest, the profit is to be shared by all the partners at the agreed profit sharing ratio.
