$\begin{array}{l}\text{ Total salary of }660\text{ workers }\\ =660\times380\\ =Rs.250800\\ \begin{array}{l}\text{ If other workers be }x\text{ ; then, }\\ =[(660-x)\times2100]+340x\\ =250800\\ \text{ Or },1386000-2100x+340x=250800\\ 1760x=1135200\\ \text{ Hence, }x=\frac{1135200}{1760}=645\\ \text{Number of other workers}\\ =645\end{array}\end{array}$
