### Question 22: The monthly incomes of Aryan and Babban are in the ratio 3 : 4 and their monthly expenditures are in the ratio 5 : 7. If each saves 15000 per month, find their monthly incomes using the matrix method.

**Solution:**

The problem can be solved by considering two matrices, one for expenditure and one for income.

=> The income matrix is: where x is a constant.

=> The expenditure matrix is:where y is a constant.

=>

We arrive at 2 equations from the above matrix equation.

=> 3x – 5y = 15000……..(eq.1)

=> 4x – 7y = 15000……..(eq.2)

Solving for y by 4(eq.1) – 3(eq.2),

=> 3x = 90000

=> x = 30000=> Their incomes and expenditures are,

=> 3x = 3(30000) =

90000and 5y = 5(15000) =75000=> 4x = 4(30000) =

120000and 7y = 7(15000) =105000
