# What is the Loss of Raghav? If

Raghav’s wages were reduced by 50 %. Again the reduced wages increased by 50% What is his loss?

- 30%
- 35%
- 25%
- 40%

**Answer: (3) 25 %**

**Explanation:-**

Let the Raghav’s wages be 100.

Raghava’s wages were reduced by 50 %.

Then, Raghav’a wages = 100 – 100 x 50/100

= 100 – 50

= 50

Again he increased by 50 %,

Then, Raghav’s wages = 50 + 50 x 50 /100

= 50 + 25

= 75

Loss = 100 – 75

= 25

Percentage of loss = 25 x 100/100

= 25 %.

Hence, the answer is (3) 25 %.
