Answer :

Let the number of winners be x. therefore, the number of participants who did not win = 63 - x.

Each winner gets Rs. 100 as prize money, therefore
Total amount given to winners be Rs 100x

Then, Amount given to the participants who did not win = Rs 25(63 - x) = Rs 1575 – 25x
Total Amount distributed = Rs. 3000

100 x + 1575 – 25 x = 3000

75 x = 3000 – 1575

75 x = 1425

Thus, the number of winners are 19.
