Question 127

The respective ratio of salaries of A and B is 8 : 7. If the salary of B increases by 10% and the salary of A increases by 20%, the new ratio becomes 96 : 77 respectively. What is A’s salary ?


Let salaries of A and B be 8x and 7x respectively.
Increased salary of A by 20% = 9.6x
Increased salary of B 10% = 7.7x
And new ratio $$\frac{9.6x}{7.7x}$$ = $$\frac{96}{77}$$

The salaries of either of them can't be determined with the provided information, hence E.
