# Incomes Or Mr. Shah, Mr. Patel and Mr. Mehta Are Ln the Ratio 1 : 2 : 3, While Their Expenditure. Arc Ln the Ratio 2 : 3 : 4 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Incomes or Mr. Shah, Mr. Patel and Mr. Mehta are ln the ratio 1 : 2 : 3, while their expenditures are in the ratio 2 : 3 : 4. if Mr. Shah saves 20% or his lncome, find the ratio of their savings.

#### Solution

Given ratio of incomes of Mr. shah. Mr patel. Mr mehta is 1 : 2 : 3

Their incomes are x, 2x, 3x respectively where x is constant. Also ratio of their expenditure is 2 : 3 : 4.

Their expenditure are 2y, 3y, 4y respectively where y is constant.

But Mr. Shah saves 20% of his income.

x - y = 20/100x

x - x/5 = 2y

y = 2/5x

Mr. Shah's savings = x - 2y

= x - 2 (2/5 x)

= 1/5x

Mr. Patels savings = 2x - 3y

= 2x - 3 (2/5 x)

= 4/5x

Mr. Mehta's savings = 3x - 4y

= 3x - 4 (2/5x)

= 7/5x

Ratio of their savings is 1/5x : 4/5x : 7/5x

i.e 1 : 4 : 7
