3. Discussion Question. (Pg. 572 12-2)

Rahmel Becker and Heather Morrow decide to form a partnership. Becker will contribute $300,000 to the partnership, while Morrow will contribute only $30,000. However, Morrow will be responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the partnership, which are anticipated to require about 45 hours per week. In contrast, Becker will only work five hours per week for their partnership. The two partners are attempting to determine a formula for dividing partnership net income. Becker believes the partners should divide income in the ratio of 7:3, favoring Becker, since Becker provides the majority of the capital. Morrow believes that income should be divided 7:3, favoring Morrow, since Morrow provides the majority of effort in running the partnership business.
INSTRUCTIONS: How would you advise the partners in developing a method for dividing income. At least 1 paragraph!
