Ques - Two persons A and B are paid a total of Rs. 2,040 per week by their employer. If B is paid 140 per cent of the sum paid to A, then how much is A paid per week? (SSC CPO 2019, 12.12.2019 Shift-2)

(a) Rs. 750

(b) Rs. 820

(c) Rs. 850

(d) Rs. 800

Solution -  

Given,

A + B = 2040

B = 140% of A 

Let,

A = 100x

B = (140/100)*100x

B = 140x

Therefore,

A + B = 2040

100x + 140x = 2040

240x = 2040

x = 2040/240

x = 8.5

Now,

A = 100x

A = 100 * 8.5

A = 850

Hence,

The correct option is (c) 850.
