The salary word is confusing. The total salary and main salary should be distinguished. |

Salary = x. Tip = 5/4. = x+5/4. = 9x/4. Required = 5x/4*4/9x. = 20/36 = 5/9 this answer. |

Tip is of 1 week, and salary period is not defined. |

I didn't understood this method. How did you got 9x/4? Is there any easier method? |

If the salary be Rs x, then tips = Rs 5x/4. Therefore, total income = salary + tips = x + 5x/4 = (4x+5x) /4 = 9x/4. When total income is 9x/4, tips is 5x/4. When total income is Re 1, tips is (5x/4)/(9x/4) = 5x/4*4/9x = 5/9 (The required fraction). |

Hey guys tip is given only for a week but time period of salary is not defined. So have a look. |

If 1:3 is radii, then what will be the area? |

Sneha R said: (Apr 22, 2020) | |

How to calculate the fraction? Could someone please explain. |

Rajkumar said: (Jun 3, 2020) | |

I think in the question the tip is given for only one week. So, (5/4)*x*(4)=5x is the tip for one month. then total income=x+5x=6x, Then required fraction=tip/total income=5x/6x=5/6. |

I couldn't understand. Anyone, please explain me. |

Nita said: (Dec 8, 2020) | |

I think the answer would be 4/9. |

Akash said: (Oct 1, 2021) | |

Yes, right @Rajkumar. 5/6 should be the answer. Salary is given in a month and tips here are weekly in this question. |
