On Christmas , A beggar earns 71 rupees in form of 20-paisa and 25-paisa.

He collects total of 324 coins.

Can you tell me how many number of 20-paisa and 25-paisa he got ?

20 paisa coins : 200

25 paisa coins : 124

Explanation:

Say he collect 20-paisa coins be A

Say he collect 25-paisa coins be B

=>number of 25-paisa coins = (324 - A).

Therefore,

0.20 X A + 0.25 (324 - A) = 71

=>20A + 25 (324 - A) = 7100

=>5A = 1000

=>A = 200.

Hence, number of 25-paisa coins = (324 - A) - 124.

A bank customer had £100 in his account. He then made 6 withdrawals, totaling £. He kept a record of these withdrawals, and the balance remaining in the account, as follows:

Withdrawals Balance left

£50 £50

£25 £25

£10 £15

£8 £7

£5 £2

£2 £0

£100 £99

Why are the Totals not exactly right ?

There is no reason whatever why the customer's original deposit of £100 should equal the total of the balances left after each withdrawal.

The total of withdrawals in the left-hand colum may equal £100, but is is purely coincidence that the total of the right-hand column is close to £100.

Let us show another example, but starting with £200 in the bank:

Withdrawals Balance left

£50 £150

£25 £125

£10 £115

£8 £107

£5 £102

£2 £100

£100 £699

Moral of this story? Don't Total Balances.
