 Rupees and Paise (Posted on 2003-03-16)
I entered a store and spent one-half of the money that was in my wallet. When I came out I found that I had just as many paise as I had rupees and half as many rupees as I had paise when I went in.

How much money did I have with me when I entered the store ?

( Given: 1 Rupee = 100 Paise ).

Perhaps what's confusing the issue is TomM's totaling of the value. The first additional solution proposed is 198 1-rupee notes, and 196 paise in coins going into the store, and when you came out you had 196/2 = 98 1-rupee notes, and 198 paise in coins, and in the process the total value had changed from 199.96 to 99.98, satisfying the criterion that you had spent half your money.
