let total = 100

infrastructure = 20
salary = 20
sum = 40

transport = 12.5
interest on loan = 17.5
sum = 30

Required % = (40-30)/30 *100 =33.33%

Can you please explain why did you take 30 at the denominator?

he divided the value with 30 because we are comparing exp on infrastructure and salary with transport and interest on loan whose sum is 12.5+17.5=30.
hope you understand my point if don't then free to ask me any time.
