Solution

Let Mr. Shekhar's income be Rs x
Money spent = 60% of x = `60/100 x`
Money donated in orphanage = Rs 300
Money left = Rs 3200
Money spent + Money donated + Money left = Total income
⇒ `60/100x` + 300 + 3200 = x
⇒ `(6x)/10` + 3500 = x
⇒ x - `(6x)/10` = 3500
⇒ `(4x )/10` = 3500
⇒ x = 8750
Thus, Mr. Shekhar's income is Rs 8750.
