Bag A contains X coins of 50 paise and Y coins of 25 paise. Bag B contains X coins of 25 paise and Y coins of 50 paise. If two coins of 50 paise from Bag A are put into Bag B and three coins of 25 paise from Bag B is put into Bag A, the value of money in both the bags become equal. What may be the minimum value of the toal amount in both the bags ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2A : 0.5x + 0.25y B : 0.25x + 0.5y  \(0.5(x2) + 0.25(y+3) = 0.25(x3) + 0.5(y+2)\) simplifying gives : \(xy=2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, do you get why \(x=3,y=1\) produce \(3\) as the sum of the sum of money in the bags ?
