**Reiny**, Tuesday, August 16, 2011 at 3:58pmbobpursley had this:

Wife's salary = W

Mr T;s salary = 3W - 800

then it said: "His wife's salary is 4/10 as much as his" ----> W = (4/10)T , again as bobpursley told you

but T = 3W-800

so

W = (4/10)(3W-800)

times 10

10W = 4(3W-800)

10W = 12W - 3200

3200 = 2W

W = 1600

then T = 3(1600) -800 = 4000

check: is 1600 equal to 4/10 of 4000 ?
