Dear Student,
First, Calculate average profit =40,000-10,000+1,00,000+1,50,0004=2,80,0004=70,000
Secondly, difference of average profit and normal profit is Super Profit.
Super Profit = Average Profit - Normal Profit = 70,000 - 56,000=14,000
Goodwill is valued at 2 years purchase of super profits
Therefore, Goodwill = 14,000×2= 28,000
Hope this answers your query.
Keep posting for further doubts!!
