Question 1. Luaa spends her monthly salary in the following manner: 20% on house rent, 20% on food, 5 % on transportation, 10% on the education, and 20% on other household expenses. She saves the remaining amount of â‚¨. 5000 at the end of the month. Find out her monthly salary?

Options:

A. Rs. 35000

B. Rs. 25000

C. Rs. 20000

D. Rs. 30000

Solution:Â Â Â Â Let the

Monthly Salary = 100%

Monthly Expenditure =

20% + 20% + 5% + 10% + 20% = 75%

Monthly Savings = 100% â€“ 75% = 25%

Now, 25% of salary saved = 5000

Letâ€™s take 100% salary as x

25% of x = 5000

x = 5000Â Ã— \frac{100}{25}

x = \frac{500000}{25}Â

x = 20000

Therefore, her monthly salary = Rs. 20000
