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

|Salary = x.
Tip = 5/4.
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).

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

|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.|

|I think the answer would be 4/9.|

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