MCQ

Choose the most appropriate option.

Praveen has Rs. 4,662 in the form of 2, 5 and 10 rupee notes. If these notes are in the ratio of 3:5:8, the number of five rupees notes with him is:

• 336

• 250

• 210

• 84

#### Solution

210

Explanation:

Let the number of 2,5 and 10 rupees notes be 3x, 5x and 8x.

Then, sum of their values = 3x × 2 + 5x × 5 + 8x × 10
= 111 x

∴ 111 x = 4662

∴ "x"=4662/111=42

Hence, the number of 5 rupees notes = 42 × 5 = 210.
