according to the question, we must setup a proportion like this : \(\frac{a}{b} = \frac{c}{d}\)
since he save 6 rupees on every 100 rupees he spends, first ratio will be 6/100 \(\frac{6}{100} = \frac{c}{d}\)
call : x, the amount he will have to spend

Other answers:

to save 30 dollars, the proportion becomes : \(\frac{6}{100} = \frac{30}{x}\)
solving gives, x = 500, and it is in the numerator.....
and i see theres a mistake in the question : its not 30%, it should be 30 $.
