Mohan's income is Rs 15500 per month.


Mohan's income is Rs 15500 per month. He saves 11% of his income. If his income increases by 10%, then he reduces his saving by 1%, how much does he save now?


Mohan's saving $=11 \%$ of 15500

$=\frac{11}{100} \times 15500$

$=$ Rs. 1705

It is given that Mohan's income increases by $10 \%$.

$\therefore$ Increase in income $=\frac{10}{100} \times 15500=\mathrm{Rs} 1550$

Increased income $=$ Rs $(15500+1550)=$ Rs 17050

Now, percentage of saving $=(11-1)=10 \%$

$\therefore$ Saving $=\frac{10}{100} \times 17050=$ Rs 1705

Thus, the amounts of his present and earlier savings are the same.
