Question 50

From the salary of an officer, 10% is deducted as house rent, 15% of the rest he spends on children’s education and 10% of the balance he spends on clothes. After this expenditure he is left with Rs 1377. His salary is

Solution

Let the salary be s.

Home rent = s/10

Education = 15% of 9s/10 = 135s/1000

Balance = s - (s/10 + 135s/1000) = s - 235s/1000 = 765s/1000

Clorhes = 765s/10000

Left salary = 765s/1000 * 9/10 = 6885/10000 s

Given : 6885s /10000 = 1377

s = 2000
