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 ?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let number of notes of each denomination be *x*.

Then *x* + 5*x* + 10*x* = 480

16*x* = 480

*x* = 30.

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

Let no of 5 rupees note be x.

Then

The no of 10 rupees notes will be (70-x).

Therefore,

5x - 10(70-x) = 590,

x = 22.

Therefore, num of 10 rupees notes is 70 - 22 = 48.

Then

The no of 10 rupees notes will be (70-x).

Therefore,

5x - 10(70-x) = 590,

x = 22.

Therefore, num of 10 rupees notes is 70 - 22 = 48.

@Amortya.

Let no.of 5 rupee note be X.

Then,

No.of 10 rupee note will be (70-X).

Therefore,

5X-10( 70- X) = 590,

X = 22.

Therefore num of 10 rupee note is 70-22 = 48.

Correct me, if I am wrong.
