**9: A person wanted to withdraw X rupees and Y paisa from the bank. But cashier made a mistake and gave him Y rupees and X paisa. Neither the person nor the cashier noticed that.After spending 20 paisa, the person counts the money. And to his surprise, he has double the amount he wanted to withdraw.**

**Find X and Y. (1 Rupee = 100 Paisa)**

**Answer :**

he wants to withdraw x rupee and y paisa

but he obtained y rupee and x paisa after spending 20 paisa remaining amount = y rupee and (x-20) paisa

it is given that y rupee (x-20) paisa = 2(x rupee y paisa)

on comparison we get y = 2x and x-20 = 2y but on solving we shall get x as a negative number which is a contradiction

an other case is also possible

y rupee (x-20) paisa = 2(x rupee y paisa)

so y rupee (x-20) paisa = 2(x rupee) 2(y paisa)

or y rupee (x-20) paisa = (2x+1) rupee (2y-100) paisa

y = 2x+1, x-20 = 2y-100

on taking y = 2x+1 in second equation, we get x-20 = 2(2x+1)-100

or x-20 = 4x+2-100 or 3x = 78 or x = 26, y = 53

**10: Integer x = 40, y = 35, z = 20, w = 10**
