Sir,in problem no 9
she invest 25% of her salary

there fore x=6000
expenses = total- savings
6000-1500=4500

• priya katyal says:

25% is invested salary …thus 1/4 of its salary is invested…now if 1/4 is invested salary then the saving salary is- 3/4..thats why
(3/4)x=1500
x=2000
Now total salary is 2000 then invested one is 1/4 of x.
=> 500
