If Albert’s monthly earnings rise by 26%, he would earn $693. If, instead, his earnings rise by only 20%, how much (in$) would he earn this month?

(A) 643
(B) 652
(C) 660
(D) 690
(E) 693

$$= \frac{693}{1.26}*1.2$$

$$= 660$$

Kudos Please... If my post helped.

If my post helped. You mean by dividing on 1.26 we found 100% or his ordinary monthly salary. Later by multipliing by 1.2 we are getting 120%? Thanx, it is now clear. I dunno why it was strange for me at first )). The equation would be setup as follows: $$693 * \frac{100}{126} * \frac{120}{100} = 660$$ _________________ Kindly press "+1 Kudos" to appreciate Re: If Albert’s monthly earnings rise by 26%, he would earn$693   [#permalink] 03 Dec 2014, 23:30
