Mr.Kapur withdrew rs.25000 from an ATM.If he received 150 notes in denominations of rs.500 and rs.100,find the no. of notes of each denomination?

although i know how to do it, but it is a 2 variable method...can u suggest a 1 variable method?

ans-25,125

thanx

Suppose the number of Rs.500 notes be x.
Total number of notes = 150
Then, number of Rs.100 notes = 150-x
Amount of 150 notes = 500x+100150-x
Total amount withdrew from an ATM = Rs.25000
So we have;
500x+100150-x=25000500x+15000-100x=25000400x=25000-15000x=10000400=25
Therefore number of Rs.500 notes = 25 and number of Rs.100 notes = 150-25=125

let the number 500 rs notes be x

and number of 100rs notes be (150-x)

according to the condition

25000 = x(500) + (150 - x)(100)

25000 = 500x + 15000 - 100x

25000 = 500x - 100x +15000

25000 -15000 = 400x

10000 = 400x

x=10000/400

x=25

number of 500 rs notes = x=25 notes

number of 100rs notes = 150 - x=150-25 = 125 notes
