Let the original salary be x

Given that, the new salary is ₹1,54,000

Original salary + Increment = New salary

Given that the increment is 10% of the original salary

(x + \(\frac{10}{100}\times x\)) = 154000

x + \(\frac{x}{10}\) = 154000

\(\frac{11x}{10}\) = 154000

x = 154000 × \(\frac{10}{11}\)

= 140000

Therefore, the original salary was Rs. 1,40,000.
