Solution(By Apex Team)

The total salary amount = 15 × 600 = 9000 The salary of the exiting manager = 720 Therefore, the salary of 12 workers and the remaining 2 managers, = 9000 − 720 = 8280 When a new manager joins, the new average salary drops to Rs. 580 for the total team of 15 of them The total salary for the 15 people i.e., 12 workers, 2 old managers and 1 new manager =580 × 15 = 8700 Therefore, the salary of the new manager is, 9000 – 8700 = 300 less than that of the old manager who left the company, which is equal to 720 – 300 = 420

Alternatively

The average salary dropped by Rs. 20 for 15 of them. Therefore, the overall salary has dropped by 15 × 20=300 Therefore, the new manager’s salary should be Rs. 300 less than that of the old manager, = 720 – 300 = 420
