Solution(By Apex Team)

Let amount invested by A = Rs. x
$\begin{aligned}&A&:&B\\
\text{ Capital }\rightarrow\quad&x&:&(x+5000)\end{aligned}$
$\begin{array}{l}\text{According to the question,}\\
\text{Share of A in profit}\\
=\Large\frac{(26000-6000)}{2}\\
=\text{ Rs. }10000\\
\text{Share of B in profit}\\
=\left(26000-10000\right)\\
=\text{Rs.}\ 16000\end{array}$
$\begin{array}{l}\Large\frac{\mathrm{C}_1\times\mathrm{T}_1}{\mathrm{C}_2\times\mathrm{T}_2}=\frac{\mathrm{P}_1}{\mathrm{P}_2}\\
\Leftrightarrow\Large\frac{x\times5}{(x+5000)\times6}=\frac{10000}{16000}\\
\Leftrightarrow4x=3x+15000\\
\Leftrightarrow x=\mathrm{Rs}.15000\end{array}$
$\begin{array}{l}\text{Required capital of A}\\
=\text{Rs.}\ 15000\\
\text{Required capital of B}.\\
=\left(15000+5000\right)\\
=\text{Rs.}\ 20000\end{array}$
