Lets assume that B's salary is 100, than A's salary will be? = 100 + 20% of 100 or = 100+ 1 /5 of 100 = 120 Now, How much percent is B's salary less from that of A's? => x was 20%. => 20/100+20 = 20/I 20 or

Short Method X percent increase will be X/100+X decrease to get back to that value Xarercent increase will be X/100-x decrease to get back to that 20% increase will be 1/5+1= 1 /6 decrease 33.33% increase will be 1/3+1 = 1/4 decrease We are adding the numerator to the denominator to get our value!! 1/8 will be 1/9 1/2 will be 1/3

If A's Salary is 40 % more than B's salary, than how much percent is B's salary less than A's salary? 40% = 215. therefore decrease in B's salary in respect to A will be 28.56% (2/7) Solution: B= 1 00 A= 140 B as a % of A= 100/140-5/7 = 71.42% Lesser by 28.56%

Due to Amar's bad habits his father reduced his pocket money by 20%, but after few days it got increased to original. What was the increase percentage? = 20% i.e 1/5 is already increase Therefore, you will have to subtract 20% from denominator. 1 / 5-1 = 1 /4 = 25%. Solution, let original pocket money be 100 after deduction of 20% = 80 when it increase back to 100, increase will be 20/80-1/4 = 25%
