Question

A total of 10,000 is distributed among 150 persons as gifts. If a gift is either of 50 or 100 denominations, then the total number of gifts worth 50 is 50.


  1. True
  2. False


Solution

The correct option is B False

Total number of gifts = 150

Let the number of gifts worth 50 be x

Then the number of gifts worth 100 would be (150 - x)

Amount spent on x gifts of  50 = 50x

Amount spent on (150 - x) gifts of 100 = 100(150 - x)

So, 50x + 100 (150 - x) = 10000

50x + 15000 - 100x = 10000

50x = 15000 - 10000 = 5000

x = 100

The total number of 50 gifts = x = 100 and hence the given statement is False.
