If the salary of x is 25% less than the salary of y and y receives 25% more than 150. Then what is the value of x?
y = 150 + (.25 * 150)
y = 150 + 37.5
y = 187.50
therefore:
x = .75 * y
x = .75 * 187.50
x = 140.625
so the salary is either $140.63 or, more likely a truncated 140.62. Businesses usually will not round up.
