Question:

Rohit deposits 12% of his income in a bank. He deposited Rs 1440 in the bank during 1997. What was his total income for the year 1997?

Solution:

Let the total income for the year 1997 be Rs $x$.

i.e., $12 \%$ of $x=1440$

$\Rightarrow \frac{12}{100} x=1440$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{144000}{12}$

$\Rightarrow x=12000$

$\therefore$ Rohit's total income was Rs 12,000 .
