**Ques -** The ratio of income of Anil and Mukesh is 2 : 3. The sum of their expenditure is Rs. 8000 and the amount of savings of Anil is equal to the amount of expenditure of Mukesh. What is the sum of their savings?

## (a) 22,000

## (b) 4,000

## (c) 16,000

## (d) 12,000

**Solution -** The ratio of income of Anil and Mukesh = 2 : 3

Let,

Income of Anil = 2x

Income of Mukesh = 3x

Expenditure of Anil = E1

Expenditure of Mukesh = E2

The sum of their expenditure = Rs. 8000

Saving = Income - Expenditure

Saving of Anil = 2x - E1

The amount of savings of Anil = the amount of expenditure of Mukesh

2x - E1 = E2

2x = E2 + E1

2x = 8000

**x = 4000**

Income of Anil = 2x

Income of Anil = 2 * 4000

Income of Anil **= 8000**

Income of Mukesh = 3x

Income of Mukesh = 3 * 4000

Income of Mukesh** = 12000**

Sum of Anil and Mukesh income = 8000 + 12000

**= 20,000**

Sum of Anil and Mukesh Expenditure **= 8000**

Sum of Anil and Mukesh Savings = Income - Expenditure

Sum of Anil and Mukesh Savings = 20,000 - 8000

Sum of Anil and Mukesh Savings **= 12,000**

Hence,

The correct answer is option **(d) 12,000.**
