A sum of Rs.700 has to be used to give seven cash prizes to the students of a school for their overall academic performance. If each prize is Rs. 20 less

than its preceding prize, what is the least value of the prize?


Let x = Least Valued Prize
Seven prizes would be 

x + 20 
x + 40 
x + 60 
x + 80 
x + 100 
x + 120 
We will add all these and put the sum equal to 700.
i.e., 7x + 420 = 700 »
As a result we get the value of x = 40, which is the least prize.

Answer is 40.  Because, if we purchase Rs.20/- as least value prize, there should not be '0' rupees prize.  Hence, the least value prize is Rs.40/-
