Expert Answer

Let the number of days he worked be x.

Number of days he didn't work will be 20-x.

Money received for each day's working = Rs. 280

Rs. 60 deducted for each day in case he is absent.

According to the question,

280x - (20-x)60 = 2540

280x - 1200 + 60x = 2540

340x = 2540 + 1200

340x = 3740

x = 11

No. of days he worked = 11

Hence, the number of days he remain absent is 20-11 = 9
