Answer.

Given total number of coins = 80
Let the number of Rs 2 coins be x
Therefore number of Rs 5 coins = (80 – x)
Total amount in the purse = Rs 232
That is 2x + 5(80 – x) = 232
2x + 400 – 5x = 232
400 – 232 = 3x
168 = 3x
x = 56
80 –x = 80 – 56 = 24
Thus there are 56 coins of Rs 2 and 24 coins of Rs 5
