Price of the shirt is 120 Rs.
Explanation : Let the price of the shirt be 'X'.
Yearly Payment =200 + X.
Payment for 9 months must be 9/12(200+X),Which is 3/4(200+X) if simplified.
But the servant is paid 120 +X (Given in the questionl)
So 3/4(200 + X) = 120 + X.
3(200+ X) = 4(120 + X)
600 + 3X = 480 + 4X.
4X - 3X = 600 - 480.
X = 120.Therefor Price of the shirt is120 Rupees.

The price of the shirt will be Rs 120

12 months payment 200 + shirt
1 month payment 200+ shirt /12
9 months payment (200+shirt/12)* 9

so it comes 9/12(200+shirt)= 120 + shirt (given in question )
solve it and get answer .... it is a shirt cost Rs 120

The servant worked for 9 months instead of 12 months, he should receive 9/12 of his annual payment

i.e., ¾ (200 + 1S).

However, the question states that the servant receive Rs. 120 + 1S where S is the price of the shirt.
By equating the two equations we get ¾ (200 + S) = 120 + S.

Therefore Price of the shirt S = Rs. 120.
