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