A certain factory employed 600 men and 400 women and the average wage was Rs25.50 per day.if a women gets Rs5 less than a man,then what is the daily wage

of a man and a women?


Let x be the wage of a man.
x-5 will be the wage of a woman.

According to the question, the formula will be

 \frac{600(x)+400(x-5)}{600+400} = 25.50
 \frac{600x+400x-2000}{1000} = 25.50
 \frac{1000x-2000}{1000} = 25.50
x-2 = 25.50
x = 27.50

Thus a man's wage is Rs 27.50 and that of a woman is Rs (27.50 - 5 = 22.50) ...
