The ratio of income of Anand to that of Balu is 5 : 4 and the expenditure of Anand to that of Balu is 3: 2. If at the end of the year, each saves Rs, 800, the income of Anand is :
Let the income of Anand and Balu be 5x and 4x and. the expenditures of Anand and Balu be 3y and 2y.
Then, 5x—3y = 800 and 4x— 2y= 800.
On solving we get : x = 400. As income = 5x = Rs. 2000.
