One year payment to the servant is Rs. 200 plus one shirt. The servant leaves after 9 months and recieves Rs. 120 and a shirt.Then find the price of the shirt.

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.

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) is equal to 120 + X. 3(200+ X) is equal to 4(120 + X) 600 + 3X is equal to 480 + 4X. 4X - 3X is equal to 600 - 480. X is equal to 120. Therefore Price of the shirt is120 Rs.

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.
