EXPLANATION

1.    Percentage of his expenditure spent on rent =15%
Percentage of his expenditure spent on transport and food =30%
⇒ 30%−15%=15% = Rs 4500
Monthly expenses:
= 100%  = ( 100/15) X 4500
= Rs. 30,000

2.    Let his monthly income be Rs x.
Original savings = Rs. ( 10/100)x
New Savings = ( 10/100)x + 20/100(10x/100)= Rs. ( 12/100)x
Original expenditure = x – (10/100)x= Rs. ( 90/100)x
New expenditure := (90/100)x – (20/100) ( 90x/100)= Rs. ( 72/100)x
Required  percentage :
[(12x/100)/(72x/100)] x 100
= 16.66%

3.    Expenditure on entertainment:
=20%of(35% of others)=7% of the total expenses
⇒ 2100=7% of total expenses
Also education accounts for 20% of the total expenses.
⇒ Expenditure on education:
= 20% of the total= Rs [ 2100 x ( 20/7)]
= Rs. 6,000

4.    Total expenditure on rent and others:
=15%+35%
=50%
Required angle = ( 50/100) x 3600
= 1800

5.    Decrease in expenditure on ‘others’:
=10,500−10,290= Rs 210
⇒ initial expenditure on clothes:
= 210 (100/10)
= Rs. 2100
Ă°  Required percentage:
= ( 2100/10,500) x 100
= 20%

6.    (c) :

Amount of saving , 600 = Rs 8000
Amount on food , 1200 = 8000*120/60 =16000
Amount on housing, 1050 = 8000*105/60=14000
Difference between food and housing = 16000-14000 =2000

7.    (c) :

Amount of saving, 600 = Rs 8000
Amount on education300= 8000*30/60 = 4000

8.    (b) :

The ratio on expenditure on food to the saving = 1200 : 600  = 2:1

9.    (b) :

Amount on education300= 8000*30/60 = 4000
Amount on housing, 1050 = 8000*105/60=14000
Total amount of education & housing = 4000 + 14000 = 18000

10.  (a) :
