Question #9802

A man spends 7/15 of his income at home,1/6 of his income on holidays and saves the rest. is he saves 22000 a year,what is his income?

Expert's answer

Let's denote the whole income as x. So we have

22000+7/15*x+1/6*x=x

x(1-1/6-7/15)=22000

x*(30-5-14)/30=22000

x*(30-5-14)/30=22000

x*11/30=22000

x=22000*30/11=60000

22000+7/15*x+1/6*x=x

x(1-1/6-7/15)=22000

x*(30-5-14)/30=22000

x*(30-5-14)/30=22000

x*11/30=22000

x=22000*30/11=60000
