A’s salary is same as 4 times B’s salary. If together they earn Rs.3,750 a month, find the salary of each.

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

Let B’s salary = Rs. x

A’s salary = Rs. 4x

According to the statement :

x + 4x = 3750

⇒ 5x = 3750

⇒ x = 750

4x = 750 x 4 = 3000

A’s salary = Rs. 3000

B’s salary = Rs. 750
