# What will be the Ratio of the Basic Pay?If

Two persons A and B get the same salary. Their basic pay are different. The allowances are 65% and 80% of the basic pay respectively. What is the ratio of the basic pay?

- 11:10
- 12:11
- 7:5
- 17:15

ANS (2) 12:11

Let the basic salary of A=x, and basic salary of B=y

The total salary of A= x+ 65% of x,

and ………………..for B= y+ 80% of y,

therefore both of the salaries are equal

A=B => x+(65x)100=y+(80y)100

on solving equation we get x/y =180/165=12/11

hence ans will be x:y=12:11.
