A sum of Rs.118 was divided among 50 boys and girls such that each boy received Rs.2.60 and each girl Rs.1.80. Find the number of boys and girls?
Average money received by each = 118/50 = Rs. 2.36 Therefore, Ratio of No.of boys and girls = 56 : 24 = 7 : 3 Therefore, Number of boys = 50 x (7/10) = 35 Number of girls = 50 - 35 = 15
