**ANSWERS WITH**

**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 360**

^{0}**= 180**

^{0}

^{}**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 , 60

^{0}= Rs 8000
∴Amount on food , 120

^{0}= 8000*120/60 =16000
∴ Amount on housing, 105

^{0}= 8000*105/60=14000**Difference between food and housing = 16000-14000 =2000**

**7.**

**(c) :**

∴ Amount of saving, 60

^{0}= Rs 8000**Amount on education30**

^{0}= 8000*30/60 = 4000

**8.**

**(b) :**

**The ratio on expenditure on food to the saving = 120**

^{0 }: 60^{0 }= 2:1

**9.**

**(b) :**

Amount on education30

^{0}= 8000*30/60 = 4000
Amount on housing, 105

^{0}= 8000*105/60=14000**Total amount of education & housing = 4000 + 14000 = 18000**

**10.**

**(a) :**

**4000 : 14000,= 2:7**
