# A Shopkeeper Buys 100 Items | Quarantine Shopping - with Answer

### Quarantine Shopping Math Puzzle

Are you a genius? Can you solve the above math puzzle?

**ANSWER**

- 5 Toilet Papers - (5 x $10=$50)
- 1 Loaf of Bread - (1 x $3= $3)
- 94 Hand Sanitizer- (94 x $0.5=$47)

Explanation

Let x = Toilet Paper

y = Loaf of Bread

z = Hand Sanitizer

So,

10x + 3y + 0.5z = 100 --- eqn (1)

x + y + z = 100 --- eqn (2)

Multiplying eqn (1) with 2

=> 20x + 6y = z = 100 --- eqn (1)

On Subtracting eqn (1) - (2), we get,

x = 5

y = 1

z = 94
