Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. Ha Anna jövedelme havonta \(\displaystyle A\), akkor Anna havi megtakarítása \(\displaystyle 0,4A\), havi kiadása \(\displaystyle 0,6A\). Betti havi jövedelme \(\displaystyle \frac85A\), havi kiadása \(\displaystyle 1,2A=\frac65 A\), ez havi jövedelmének \(\displaystyle \frac65:\frac85=\frac34\) része. Tehát Betti havi megtakarítása havi jövedelmének 25%-a.
