Let average monthly income of Mr Roy be M, of wife be W and of daughter be D.

M + W = Rs 5, 050      -- eq 1
W + D = Rs 6, 250       -  eq  2
M + D = Rs 5, 200       -- eq  3

Subtract equation 1  from eq 2 ,  D - M = Rs 1, 200

Add this to eq 3:    2 D = Rs 6, 400   =>  D = Rs 3, 200  (Daughter' income)

Substitute in equation 2,    W = Rs 3, 050  (wifes income)
Substitute it in equation 1 ,    M = Rs 2, 000     (man's income)

sir ... but in book the ans. is given as 4000Rs...
if Roy's income is 4000, try finding mrs roy and daughter salaries.. they do not match the numbers given. so 4,000 is wrong.
