Let profit for the year 2010 be Rs.k
Using simple average method of Goodwill:
Goodwill = Avereage of last 5years * No. of years of purchase

Substituiting the values given,
124200 = (k-40000+92000+70000+55000)/5 * 2
124200/2 * 5 = k+177000
310500 = k + 177000
k = 133500

Therefore, Profit for the year 2010 is 133500.
