# A man got a 10% increase in his salary. If his new salary is ₹ 1,54,000, find his original salary.

**Solution:**

Given: Percentage of increase in salary = 10%

New Salary = Rs 1,54,000

Let the original salary be x

The percentage increase is 10%

Therefore, Original salary + Increment in salary = New Salary

x + 10% of x = 154000

x + (10/100) × x = 154000

(110/100) × x = 154000

x = (154000 × 100) / 110

x = 140000
