Ratio of income of Jayesh to the expenditure of Suresh is 4:3 and Jayesh spends 85% of his income whereas Suresh spends 90% of his income. If savings of Suresh is Rs. 6000 less than that of Jayesh, then the income of Suresh (in Rs) is
Let income of Jayesh=4x and expenditure of Suresh=3x
Expenditure of Jayesh=85% of 4x=17x/5
Savings of Jayesh=4x - 17x/5=3x/5
Income of Suresh=(100/90)*3x=10x/3
Savings of Suresh=10x/3 - 3x=x/3
Difference of savings of Jayesh & Suresh = 3x/5 - x/3 = 6000
Solving, we get x=22500
.'. Income of Suresh=10*22500/3=75000
