Consolidation of financial statements

In practice problem 4 . In video for dividend of 20000 is added to post acquisition of 52000 then 72000 came . And then sir deducted 20000 from pre aquisition profit after time adjustment and the value came to 146000 .. instead of that can we deduct 20000 from pre acquisition ie 30000 -20000 =10000 before time adjustment then post acquisition column would be 72000 (10000-82000) .. Can we do like this . Please reply I am fully confused ..

You cannot adjust for dividend before time adjustment as, profits on date of acquisition are not given

Though the dividend relates to pre-acquisition it is paid only out of current year profits. This made us add back to the post acquisition column as there wass outflow from current profits. After time adjustments the same dividend is deducted as it belongs to pre-acquisition period.
