Mrs. Chan earned a fixed income every month. She spent 60% of her monthly income and saved the rest in the month of April. In May, she spent 25% more than the amount she had spent in April and saved a total of $2600. Find her monthly salary . 2. She saved 40% of monthly wage in month one (spent 60%) She saved 25% of monthly wage in month two (spent 75% i.e. 60% x 1.25 25% more) So saved a total of 65% of a monthly wage Total savings=$2600.00

monthly wage x 0.65 = $2600 so, monthly wage =$2600/0.65 = \$4000
