Ramesh has 1/3 as many $2 bills as $5 bills. The total value of the $2 and $5 bills that Ramesh has is $136. How many $5 bills does Ramesh have?

 

hint: put one $2 bills and three $5 bills in one group.

Call  the number of $5  bills x

And the number of $2  bills  = (1/3)x

 

So

 

No of  $2 bills  x  value each  +  No  of $5  bills x  their value  each =  136

 

(1/3)x * 2   +  x * 5  =   136      simplify

 

(2/3)x   +  5x  =   136

 

(2/3)x  + (15/3)x  =  136

 

(17/3)x  = 136

 

x = 136 ( 3/17)  =  24  =  number of $5 bills
