**Q. A traveler changes 150 pounds into rupees at the rate of Rs. 7000 for 100 pounds. He spends Rs. 9060 and changes the remaining amount back to pounds at the rate of 100 pounds to Rs. 7200. How many pounds will he get?***- Published on 06 May 16***a.** 18 pounds

**b.** 20 pounds

**c.** 25 pounds

**d.** 30 pounds

**ANSWER: 20 pounds**

Amount of rupees for exchange of 150 pounds = (150/100)*(7000/1) = Rs. 10,500

Out of these Rs.10,500, traveler spent Rs. 9060

Remaining balance in rupees = 10,500 – 9060 = Rs. 1440

Now these Rs. 1440 are exchanged back to pounds with the rate of 100 pounds for Rs. 7200

Amount in pounds = (1440 * 100) / 7200 = 20 pounds
