#### Solution

Let the number of Rs . 10 notes be x.
Therefore, the number of Rs . 20 notes will be (50 - x) .
Value of Rs . 10 notes = 10x
Value of Rs . 20 notes = 20(50 - x)
According to the question,
$10x + 20(50 - x) = 800$
or 10x + 1000 - 20x = 800
or 10x = 1000 - 800
or $x = \frac{200}{10} = 20$
∴ Number of Rs . 10 notes = 20
Number of Rs . 20 notes = (50 - 20) = 30 .
