### quant problem

Let 50 paise coins be X

2 rupee coins be Y

1 rupee coin be Z

5 rupee coin be T

Given :- 0.5X + 2Y + Z +5T = 50 ---------- (i)

Y= 5 + T ---------- (ii)

X= 2Z ----------- (iii)

0.5X + Z=26 -----(iv)

therefore, 26+ 2(5+T) + 5T = 50

26+ 10+ 2T+ 5T =50

7T= 50-36 =14

T=2

Substituting the value of T in equation (ii)

we get, Y= 5+ 2= 7

2 rupee coins be Y

1 rupee coin be Z

5 rupee coin be T

Given :- 0.5X + 2Y + Z +5T = 50 ---------- (i)

Y= 5 + T ---------- (ii)

X= 2Z ----------- (iii)

0.5X + Z=26 -----(iv)

therefore, 26+ 2(5+T) + 5T = 50

26+ 10+ 2T+ 5T =50

7T= 50-36 =14

T=2

Substituting the value of T in equation (ii)

we get, Y= 5+ 2= 7
