Let x and y be positive integers.

Amount on the cheque A = Rs x  and y paise. = 100 x + y  paise
as paise are less than 100,     1<=  y <= 99
Actually given amount B = Rs y and x paise. = 100 y + x paise
1 <= x <= 99

Amount Remaining after 5 paise are spent : B - 5 =   100 y + x - 5 paise
B - 5 = 2 A
100 y + x - 5 = 2 (100 x + y)
98 y - 5 = 199 x

=>  98 y = 199 x + 5
98  y =  196 x + (3 x + 5 )
98 (y - 2x) = 3 x + 5

Since  x and y are integers,    y-2x = integer  and is > 0  as RHS is positive.
3 x + 5 is a multiple of 98.
=> x = (98-5)/3 = 31    one solution.
=> x = (2*98-5)/3 ≠ integer
=>  x = (3*98-5)/3 ≠ integer
=> x = (4*98-5)/3  > 100  so not a solution.

Hence, x = Rs  31    and  y - 2x = 1  =>  y = 63 paise.
