Please help me!!!!!

Anuar had 40 more twenty-cents coins than one-dollar coins. He exchanged all the twenty-cent coins for one-dollar coins. He then had 20 one-dollar coins altogether. What is the value of all the twenty-cents coins he had at first? (answer is $10) kindly show me the working clearly. Thank you very much.

Hey Jessica,

Kindly refer to the worked solution below:

Total value of all the coins at first = $20
At first, value of 40 more 20cent coins = $8
Same unit (qty) of both 20cent and $1 coins = $20 - $8 = $12
using Number x Value method, we have ...
( 1u x 20 ) + ( 1u x 100 ) --> 1200 ( converting money to cents , and 1u -> same number/qty of both types of coins )
20u + 100u --> 1200
120u --> 1200
1u --> 1200 / 120 = 10
So the value of the $1 coins = 1u x $1 = 10 x $1 = $10
Since total value of both types of coins is $20, the value of all the 20cent coins = $20 - $10 = $10

==========================================

Trust the above helps.

Any clarification , pls do not hesitate to ask.

Cheers,
Edward
