Let the Number of 25 paisa coins = x

therefore , Number of 10 paisa coins = 2x

and Number of 5 paisa coins = 3x

Hence Total Value = 25*x + 10*2x +5*3x

=25x+20x+15x =

According to Question ,

total Value = 760 -------------------- (2)

from 1 and 2 , we get

60x = 760

or x =76/6

Hope this helps you!!

Thank You..

Cheers!!!!
