# After getting an 8% increase in the salary, Mohan's new salary is Ã¢â€šÂ¹ 1,51,200. What was his original salary?

**Given :**

Percentage increase in Mohan's salary = 8%

Mohan's new salary = 151200

**
**

**
**

**To find :**

We have to find Mohan's original salary.

**
**

**
**

**Solution :**

Let Mohan's original salary be $x$

Percentage increase in Mohan's salary = 8%

Mohan's increased salary $=\frac{8}{100} \times x = \frac{8x}{100}$

$Original salary + Increased salary = New salary $

$x + \frac{8x}{100} = 151200$

$\frac{100x + 8x}{100} = 151200$

$\frac{108 x}{100} = 151200$

$x = \frac{151200 \times 100}{108}$

$x = 1400 \times 100$

$x = 140000$
