Solution

Let the monthly incomes of Aryan and Babban be 3x and 4x, respectively.

Suppose their monthly expenditures are 5y and 7y, respectively.

Since each saves Rs 15,000 per month,

Monthly saving of Aryan: 3x-5y=15,000Monthly saving of Babban: 4x-7y=15,000

The above system of equations can be written in the matrix form as follows:

3-54-7xy=1500015000

or,
AX = B, where A=3-54-7, X=xy and B=1500015000

Now,

A=3-54-7=-21--20=-1

Adj A=-7-453T=-75-43

So, A-1=1AadjA=-1-75-43=7-54-3

X=A-1Bxy=7-54-31500015000xy=105000-7500060000-45000xy=3000015000x=30,000 and y=15,000

Therefore,

Monthly income of Aryan = 3×Rs 30,000=Rs 90,000

Monthly income of Babban = 4×Rs 30,000= Rs 1,20,000

From this problem, we are encouraged to understand the power of savings. We should save certain part of our monthly income for the future.
