Please teach me how. Thanks
let $20 bills are x then can you tell how many bills of $50 he had?
.5x = 50 bills 2(.5x)= 100 bills Is that right? Then how do you solve it?

Other answers:

no he has half of as many $50 bills as $20 so $ 50 bills are x/2 can you tell how many $100 bills he has?
But isnt .5 = 1/2 Well okay then 100 bills =2(x/2)
you are right i did not look dot in it
now make equation with this information.
How? x+.5x+2(.5x) = ?
no 20x+(.5x)(50)+100x=8990 now solve for x
X=62 Then what @03225186213
