Mary's income is 60 percent more than Tim's income, and Tim's income is 40 percent less than Juan's income. What percent of Juan's income is Mary's income?

(A) 124%
(B) 120%
(C) 96%
(D) 80%
(E) 64%


Juan's income = 100 (assume);
Tim's income = 60 (40 percent less than Juan's income);
Mary's income = 96 (60 percent more than Tim's income).

Thus, Mary's income (96) is 96% of Juan's income (100).

Answer: C.


Hello Bunuel,

i dont understand one thing:

if Tiim`s income is 100
Marry`s income is 160
now if Tim's income is 40 percent less than Juan's income --> which means that Juan`s income is 140

whats wrong with my reasoning ? :?

from above question we can frame 2 equations:-
t+60%t=m
J-40%J=T
if i would be at your place i will try to make my question easier with lesser calculation i will simply put J as 100 that will make my question pretty easy and you will find straight answer as c.
