## kaylala 2 years ago Henry counted the money he saved for one month and found he has \$8990 consisting of \$100, \$50 and \$20 bills. He had half as many \$50 bills as \$20 bills but2 times as many as \$100 bills as \$50 bills. How many bills of each kind did he have?

let \$20 bills are x then can you tell how many bills of \$50 he had?

3. kaylala

.5x = 50 bills 2(.5x)= 100 bills Is that right? Then how do you solve it?

4. kaylala

@03225186213 ^

5. 03225186213

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?

6. kaylala

But isnt .5 = 1/2 Well okay then 100 bills =2(x/2)

7. 03225186213

you are right i did not look dot in it

8. kaylala

Okay

9. 03225186213

now make equation with this information.

10. kaylala

How? x+.5x+2(.5x) = ?

11. kaylala

@03225186213 ^

12. 03225186213

no 20x+(.5x)(50)+100x=8990 now solve for x

13. kaylala

X=62 Then what @03225186213

14. 03225186213

henry has 62 bills of \$20 31 bills of \$50 and 62 bills if \$100
