# Find his monthly average income if he saves Rs. 2900 during the year?

The average expenditure of a man for the first five months is 1200 and for the next seven months is Rs.1300. Find his monthly average income if he saves Rs. 2900 during the year

- Rs. 1500
- Rs. 1475
- Rs. 1450
- Rs. 1425

**Answer: (1) Rs. 1500**

**Explanation:-**

The average expenditure of a man for the first five months = Rs. 1200

Therefore, the sum of expenditure of money foe the first five months = 5 x 1200

= Rs. 6, 000

The average expenditure for next seven months = Rs. 1300

Therefore, the sum of expenditure of money for next seven months = 7 x 1300

= Rs.9, 100

Then, the total expenditure of a man during the year = 6, 000 + 9, 100

= Rs. 15, 100

He saves in the year = Rs. 2, 900

So, the total income of a year = 15, 100 + 2, 900

= Rs. 18, 000

Then, his monthly average income = 18, 000/12

= Rs. 1, 500

Hence, the correct answer is (1) Rs. 1, 500.
