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. 9/12/2013 | Rusty P. Comment
