help with a percentage question

I need help figuring this out

51% of a Company is owned by management, they have no financial investment. = $0

49% is owned by the Limited Members =$210,000
Someone just invested $10,000 for a 2.333 percent interest of the 49% thus diluting the 49% buy 2.333% or 46.667%.
I have $20,000 invested and my friend has $15,000. What is our share of the 46.667% now that we are diluted?


Thanks

That implies you have 4/7 and your friend has 3/7 of whatever you own between you, regardless of all the other details.

If you want to find share of 49% then

10,000 : 7/3(i.e. 2.3333) :: 20,000 : x

10,000*x = 20,000*7/3

x=14/3 =4.66666(your share)

similarly your frind share= 3.5

If you want to find share in remaining 46.667% first find 49%

(10,000/x)*100=7/3

x = 10,00,000*3/7=30,00,000/7=428571.429

now 46.667% share is 418571.429

your share 20000/418571.429*100=4.778%

your frind share 15000/418571.429 = 3.5836%
