Dear Student,

Let the number of days for which the employee was present = xThen, the number of days for which the employee was absent = 30-xNow,  money received for each day he works = Rs 200So, money received for x days = Rs 200xMoney fined for each day he was absent = Rs 20So, money fined for 30-x days = 2030-x = Rs 600-20xAccording to question :200x - 600-20x = 3800200x - 600 + 20x = 3800220x = 4400x = 4400220 = 20So, the number of days for which the employee was absent = 30 - 20 = 10
