# In a bag, the number of one–rupee coins is three times the number of two rupees coins. If the worth of the coins is ₹ 120, find the number of 1–rupee coins.

Answer :

Let the number of two–rupee coin be y. Then, the number of one–rupee coins is 3y.

Total money by two –rupee coins = 2 × y = 2y

Total money by one –rupee coins = 1 × 3y = 3y

Total worth of coins = ₹120

So, the equation formed is 2y + 3y = 120

⇒ 5y = 120

⇒ [Divide by 5 both side]

⇒ y = 24

∴ Number of two–rupee coins = y = 24 and number of one–rupee coins = 3y = 3 × 24 = 72.
