  1. If his income is x

    amount spent on food --- 3/5 x, leaving him with 2/5 x
    amount spent on school ---- (1/4)(2x/5) = x/10

    x - x/10 - 3x/5 = 180000
    3x/10 = 180000
    x = 600000

    check:
    spent on food = (3/5)(600000) = 360000
    leaving him 240000
    spends 1/4 of that or 60000 leaving him with 180000
