Let the income of the man = x

then expenditure = 0.75x and savings = 0.25x

now after 20 % increment income = 1.2x and with 10 % increment in the expenditure it will be 0.75x*1.1 = 0.825x

so savings = 1.2x - 0.825x = 0.375x

so new % of savings relative to new income = (0.375x/1.2x)*100

= 0.3125*100 = 31.25 %

then expenditure = 0.75x and savings = 0.25x

now after 20 % increment income = 1.2x and with 10 % increment in the expenditure it will be 0.75x*1.1 = 0.825x

so savings = 1.2x - 0.825x = 0.375x

so new % of savings relative to new income = (0.375x/1.2x)*100

= 0.3125*100 = 31.25 %

Price increased by (1/8)

Therefore consumption should reduce by (1/8+1) = 1/9 times viz., 11.11%

Therefore consumption should reduce by (1/8+1) = 1/9 times viz., 11.11%
