1 EUR 26,20 CZK 28,00 CZK
1 GBP b=? CZK c=? CZK


1. How many euros (a =?) Will the customer receive unless he exchanges CZK 4,200?

When a money changer buys £ 1,000 from a customer and then sells them all, his total profit is CZK 2,200. If, instead, the exchange sold 1,000 pounds and then exchanged all the torn crowns with another customer for pounds, he would earn 68.75 pounds.

2. For how many crowns does the exchange buy and sell 1 pound?

Correct answer:

a =  150 Eur
b =  32 CZK
c =  34.2 CZK

Step-by-step explanation:


a = 4200/28
1000 (c-b) = 2200
1000 (c-b) = 68.75 b


a = 4200/28
1000·(c-b) = 2200
1000·(c-b) = 68.75·b

28a = 4200
1000b-1000c = -2200
1068.75b-1000c = 0

Pivot: Row 2 ↔ Row 3
28a = 4200
1068.75b-1000c = 0
1000b-1000c = -2200

Row 3 - 1000/1068.75 · Row 2 → Row 3
28a = 4200
1068.75b-1000c = 0
-64.327c = -2200


c = -2200/-64.32748538 = 34.2
b = 0+1000c/1068.75 = 0+1000 · 34.2/1068.75 = 32
a = 4200/28 = 150

a = 150
b = 32
c = 171/5 = 34.2
