Hi everybody! I am stuck with this question again.

Celestine has some twenty-cent coins and fifty-cent coins in the ratio 3 : 4. Given that all the coins add up to \$104, how many fifty-cent coins does Celestine have?

Hey Shirley,

Following pls find the worked solution:

Use <Number x Value method>

(3u x 20) + (4u x 50) --> 10400 (converting all to cents)
60u + 200u --> 10400
260u --> 10400
1u --> 40

Number of 50cent coins: 4u --> 4 x 40 = 160

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

Trust this helps.

Do let me know if this does not agree with your answerkey.

Cheers,
Edward
