Rs. 8000

Step-by-step explanation:A person spends 30% of monthly salary on rent, 25% on food, 20% on children’s education and 12% on electricity, and the balance of Rs. 1,040 on the remaining items. What is the monthly salary of the person? = 1040×10013 = 8000

please mark my answer as brainliest

Answer:Rs.8,000

Step-by-step explanation:Let monthly salary of a person be x% of his salary

for Spending on remaining items

= (100−30−25−20−12)%

= (100−87)% = 13%

Hence, 1040 = 13% of x

= 13×x100

= 1040×10013 = 8000.
