Simple way....

for eg:- first day --- 10 RS
second day --- 10 RS
Third Day --- -2 RS
Infact he lost 12 RS

so (300 - 12X) = 216

solving above equation will get X = 7 Source: CoolInterview.com

let he haven't work for x day
then (30 -x)*10-2*x=216
==> 300 -12x=216
12x=84
==> x=7

if the man has worked full 30 days he would get a wage of Rs.300. but if he doesnt come for a job he has to loose Rs.12 as he s loosing Rs10 of his wage and Rs.2 as fine. so Rs.10+Rs2=Rs.12
at the end he has received Rs216. so the money he lost due to his absence is 300-216=Rs 84. since he has to loose Rs 12 each da of his absence its 84/12=7
so he din come for 7 days Source: CoolInterview.com

NO OF DAYS = 30
PAY PER DAY = 10
Total amount = 30*10=300
absence per day = 2
(2*30 = 60)
but finally he got 216
actually amount = (300-60 =240)
but for his absence
240-216=14
per day absence is 2
so 14/2=7
