# Two salesmen make equal sales during the month of August. In September, each salesman doubles his sales for the month of August. Compare their sales in September. Solve using Euclid’s axiom

**Solution:**

Given, two salesmen make equal sales during the month of August.

In September, each salesman doubles his sales for the month of August.

We have to compare their sales in September.

Let the sale of one salesman in August be x.

Given, sales are equal.

So, sale of other salesman in August = x

In September, sale of first salesman = 2x

Sale of second salesman = 2x

Using Euclid’s axiom,

Things which are double of the same thing are equal to one another

Therefore, in September the sales are equal.

**✦ Try This: **Two salesmen make equal sales during the month of January. In March, each salesman triples his sales for the month of January. Compare their sales in March.
