1. The ratio between percentage value of X part of Revati’s daily wages which is Rs 300 and 22.5% of Janki’s daily wages is 2:1. If X% of Janki’s daily wages is equal to Rs 60, then find the value of X.

Solution: Let the ratio of their income be 5x and 4x and their expenditure be 3y and 2y.

So, 5x – 3y = 6000 and 4x – 2y = 6000
On solving the above equations, we get
x = 3000 and y = 3000

Suresh’s income = 5x = Rs 15000

3. The average of salary of all 35 employees is Rs 22000. If the average salary of all regular employees is Rs 25000 and average salary of all part-time employees is Rs 18000, then find the ratio of total regular employees to the part time employees of the company.

a) 1 : 2 b) 2 : 3 c) 3 : 4 d) 4 : 3
