Personally I feel this type of questions can be done faster by plugging in numbers.

Assume total family earnings in May = 100
So Lee earnings in May = 60

In June Lee earns 20% more than in May = 72
Total income = 72 + 40 (Rest of the family income) = 112

Now Lee % share = 72/112 * 100 = Approx 64%
