Let the initial salary be y.

now if we increase y by 25%, the value will become 32000.

It's equation is given as,

y+25%xy=32000

(we can also write 25% as 25/100) so

y+(25/100)y=32000

taking L.C.M. of y+(25/100)y we get,

(125/100)y=3200

now we take (125/100) to the other side of equation, it becomes its reciprocal as,

y=3200x(100/125)

y=25600

So his original salary was Rs.25600.

now if we increase y by 25%, the value will become 32000.

It's equation is given as,

y+25%xy=32000

(we can also write 25% as 25/100) so

y+(25/100)y=32000

taking L.C.M. of y+(25/100)y we get,

(125/100)y=3200

now we take (125/100) to the other side of equation, it becomes its reciprocal as,

y=25600

So his original salary was Rs.25600.

On increasing the salary 25% means125% of the salary is Rs.32000.
let the original salary be x.
hence125x/100=32000
i. e. x=32000×100/125
x=25600
Hence the original salary is Rs.25600.
