# Math Help - Percentage question #4.

1. ## Percentage question #4.

In the first 3 monthsof a year, Sally spent 72% of her salary. In the next 4 months, she increased her savings by 25%. If Sally earned the same salary of $1800 per month, what is her average monthly expenditure for the 7 months? 2. In the first 3 months, expenditure is 72%. => in the first 3 months her saving is (100-72)% = 28%. In next 4 month, she increased her saving by 25% which is equal to (28 + 28*25/100)% = 35% There forre in next four months her expenditure is (100-35)% = 65 %. There for the % average expenditure in 7 months = (72.3+65.4)/7 % = 476/7 = 68% Her average expenditure =$(1800 . 68)/100 = \$1224
