Note: In the absence of information as to withdrawal of goodwill amount, it is assumed that P and Q did not withdraw the amount of goodwill.

Goodwill is distributed in the ratio of sacrifice made by P and Q.  Please note in the question it is mentioned that R becomes partner for 3/7 share which he takes 2/7 from P and 1/7 from Q.    Sacrificing ratio of P and Q is 2/7 : 1/7 that is, 2 : 1.  So the amount of goodwill brought by R is distributed between P and Q in the ratio 2:1.
