## 3. Ravi's salary was reduced by 25%.Percentage increase to be effected to bring the salary to the original level is

**Answer:**

**Option A**

**Explanation :**

Method: 1

Let's assume Ravi salary = 100

It get reduced by 25% => Salary = 75

75(1 + P/100) = 100

1+ P/100 = 4/3

P = 100/3 = 33 1/3%.

Method: 2

You can use directly formula i.e

[(R*100)/(100-R)]% Where 'R' is decresed %

so put 25 at place of 'R'

=> [(25 * 100)/(100 - 25)]% => [(25 *100)/75]%

=>100/3% = 33 1/3%
