**Given:**

Expenditure on food is 5000

Expenditure on Rent is 20000

Expenditure on Travel is 10000

Expenditure on Clothing is 3000

Expenditure on Miscellaneous is 15000

Expenditure on Savings is 7500

**Formula used:**

Savings percent = (Savings/Monthly salary) × 100%

**Calculation:**

According to the question

Monthly salary = 5,000 + 20,000 + 10,000 + 3,000 + 15,000 + 7,500 = 60,500

Savings = 7500

According to the formula

Savings percent = (7500/60500) × 100%

⇒ 12.39 ~ 12.4

**∴ 12.4 percent of her monthly salary is she able to save.**
