this approach might be similar to the earlier one, assume M-Managers, M1- Average salary of managers, D- Directors,D1- Average salary of directors, we need to find out % of directors = D/(M+D) State1. M1 = MM1+DD1/(M+D) - 15,000 State2. D1 = MM1+DD1/(M+D) + 15000 Solving these 2, we will reach (D-M)...

2x+y = 12, or x = 6- y/2, that implies, even y will give integer x
mody<=12, or 12<=y<=12, or y ranges from -12,-10,-8,.....0,............12
its an AP, -12+(n-1)2 = 12, that implies, n = 13 and hence 13 pairs.
