Question

# Kishore earns a weekly salary of Rs 925 and a 5% commission on his total sales. Neeraj earns a weekly salary of Rs. 1250 and a 3% commission on sales. What amount of sales will result in them earning the same amount for the week?

Hint:

### ○ Form the equation according to given information..

○ Take variable values as x or any alphabet.

○ Solve the equation to get value of x.

○ Percentage x of y is given by

y

## The correct answer is: ⇒ x = 16250

### ○ Given:

Kishore earns a weekly salary of Rs 925 and a 5% commission on sales.

Neeraj earns a weekly salary of Rs. 1250 and a 3% commission on sales.

○ Step 1:

○ Let the total sale be Rs. x.

∴ Kishore earning will be equal to,

weekly salary + 5% commission on total sale

925 + 5% of x

925 + x

925 + 0.05x

Neeraj earning will be equal to,

weekly salary + 3% commission on total sale

1250 + 3% of x

1250 + x

1250 + 0.03x

○ Step 2:

○ Equate the salary of Kishore and Neeraj.

925 + 0.05x = 1250 + 0.03x

0.05x - 0.03x = 1250 - 925

0.02x = 325

x =

x = 16250

- Final Answer:

Hence, Rs. 16250 amount of sales results in same earning of both at end of the week.
