A man has Rs.480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the total number of notes that he has ?
45
60
75
90
Explanation:

Let number of notes of each denomination be x.

Then x + 5x + 10x = 480

16x = 480

x = 30.

Hence, total number of notes = 3x = 90.

The number of notes of each denomination is equal means:

No of one rupee notes = no of five rupee notes = no of ten rupee notes.

x + x + x = 3x.

@All.

How 16 came means;

=> x + 5x + 10x = 16x.
