    Simple %age Question - Am I correct

    I came across a question which is:

    A man saved $2400 or 37.5% of his daily salary.What was his daily salary.
    Now the book states the answer is 64 but I got 6400. Could this be a typo in the book.
    My method for getting the answer was

    (37.5/100).x=2400
    so x=6,400

    Ay suggestions?
