Solution :
Let the Number of five Rupees coins be x.
Therefore , Number of two rupee coins = 2x
Total amount(in RS) = 72
we know that ,
5*number of five rupee coins + 2*number of two rupee coins  = total amount
5*x+2*2x =72
or 5x +4x =72
or 9x = 72
x= 72/9
or x=8
Hence Number of five rupee coins = 8
therefore , number of two rupee coins = 2x = 2*8 =16

Let the number of teachers = x
therefore , number of girls = 10x
hence number of boys = 10x +20

Number of Students and Teachers = 1049
( Number of teachers and students = number of boys + number of girls + number of teachers )

or
x +  10x  +  10x+20 = 1049
(
where x= number of teachers

10x = number of girls
10x+20 = number of boys
)

21x+20 = 1049
21x = 1049 - 20
21x = 1029
or x = 1029/21
x=49
therefore number of teachers = 49
hence number of girls = 10*x = 10*49 = 490
and number of boys = 10*x + 20  = 10*49 + 20 = 490 + 20 = 510

Hope this helps you!!
