Let the total  number of coins be  N.       N = 36.

Let there be n number of 10 paise coins. Their value     n * 10  paise
let there be m number of 25 paise coins.  Their valie   m * 25 paise

So, there are (N - m - n) number of 5 paise coins.
Their value   (N-m-n) * 5 paise  = (36 - m - n) * 5 paise = 180 - 5 m - 5 n  paise

The total value:     25 m + 10 n + 180 - 5 m - 5 n = 300 paise
20 m + 5 n  = 120

4 m + n = 24
n = 60 - 4 m = 4 (6 - m)
Thus n is a multiple of 4.

we also say that there is at least one 25 paise, at least one 5 paise and at least one 10 paise coin present.

1)
n = 4:   m = 5
there are  4 of 10 paise, 5 of 25 paise, and  27  of 5 paise coins.

2)  n = 8 ,  m = 4
so there are  8 of 10 paise, 4 of 25 paise, and 24 of 5 paise coins.

3)  n = 12   ,  m = 3
so there are  12 of 10 paise,  3 of 25 paise, and 21 of 5 paise coins

4)
n = 16 ,  m = 2
so there are 16 of 10 paise, 2 of 25 paise coins, and 18 of 5 paise.
5)
n = 20  m  = 1
there are  20 of  10 paise ,  1 of 25 paise coins,  and 15 of 5 paise coins.

Let there be x number of 10 paise coins.
y number of 25 paise coins.
that means, the no. of 5 paise coins = (36 - x - y)
The total value:     25x + 10y + 5(36-x-y) = Rs 3
⇒ 25x + 10y + 180 - 5x - 5y = 300
20x + 5y  = 120
y = 24 - 4x = 4(6 - x)

As y is the multiple of 4,
a) y = 4 then x = 5
10 paise = 4, 25 paise = 5, and  5 paise coins = 27.

b)   y = 8 ,  x = 4
10 paise = 8, 25 paise = 4, and  5 paise coins = 24

c)  y = 12   , x = 3
10 paise = 12, 25 paise = 3, and  5 paise coins = 21

d)    y = 16 ,  x = 2
10 paise = 16, 25 paise = 2, and  5 paise coins = 18

e)    y = 20  x = 1
There are  10 paise = 20, 25 paise = 1, and  5 paise coins = 15
