Explanation:

Kalki's old share = 5/8
Kumud's old share = 3/8

Kalki's new share = 3/6
Kumud's new share = 2/6
Kaushtubh's new share = 1/6

Calculation of the sacrificing ratio:

Sacrificing ratio = Old share - New share

For Kalki:

Sacrificing ratio = 5/8 - 3/6

= "30 - 24"/"48"

= 6/48

For Kumud:

Sacrificing ratio = 3/8 - 2/6

= "18 - 16"/"48"

= 2/48

Calculation of goodwill shares:

Goodwill share = Goodwill × Sacrificing ratio

For Kalki:

Goodwill = Rs 3,60,000 × 6/48

= Rs 45,000

For Kumud:

Goodwill = Rs 3,60,000 × 2/48

= Rs 15,000
