2. 

If the expenditure of Company Y in 1997 was Rs. 220 crores, what was its income in 1997 ?

[A]. Rs. 312 crores
[B]. Rs. 297 crores
[C]. Rs. 283 crores
[D]. Rs. 275 crores

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Profit percent of Company Y in 1997 = 35.

Let the income of Company Y in 1997 be Rs. x crores.

Then, 35 = x - 220 x 100     =>     x = 297.
220

Therefore Income of Company Y in 1997 = Rs. 297 crores.

Please explain me.

35 = ((X-200)/220)*100.

X = 297.

See here,
35 = (x/220-220/220)*100.

35 = (x/220-1)*100.
35/100 = x/220 -1.

35/100+1 = x/220.
135/100 = x/220.

135100*220 = x.
297 = x.

35 = x-220/220*100.
x-220/220 = 35/100.
x-220/220 = 7/20.
20x-4400 = 1540.
20x = 1540+4400.
20x = 5940.
x = 5940/20.
x = 297.

35 = [(x-220)/220*100].
35/100 = (x-220)/220.
(35/100)*220 = x - 220,
0.35*220 = x-220,
77 = x-220,
x = 220 + 77,
x = 297.
