Sum

A sum of Rs 800 is in the form of denominations of Rs 10 and Rs 20. If the total number of notes be 50, find the number of notes of each type.

#### 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 .

Is there an error in this question or solution?
