## Finding the percentage change to get back to the original amount

– Example

Q. A person’s salary was reduced by 20%. So What percentage should be added to get back his original salary?

Solution:

Let the original salary be ₹ 100.

20% of his original salary = 20 × 100 = ₹ 20

100

∴ the current salary = 100 – 20

= ₹ 80

∴ The increase in salary required so as to get back the original salary = 100 – 80 = ₹ 20

Percentage increase = ????????

??????? ??????

× 100

= 20 × 100 = 25%

80

Thus, there should be an increase of 25% to his current salary to get back to his original salary.
