Dear student


Let the number of prizes of Rs. 100 be =x, and worth rs.25 be y.

Given that,

100x+25y= 2700

Simplify the above equation, we get

4x+y= 108 ….(1)

As per the given question;

x+y= 63 ….(2)

Now, solve equation (1) and (2), we get

3x= 45

x= 15

Now, substitute x= 15 in equation (2), we get

15+y= 63

y=63-15

y=48

Thus, the number of prizes worth Rs. 1oo is 15 and the number of prizes worth Rs. 25 is 48.


Thanks
