FOR U SCRUTABILIS,
Here may be two conditions
1)rupees r an even no.
2)ropees r an odd no.
let we take second case...suppose he had 23.50 rs. then after spending half amount he had 11.75[23/2=11.50,50/2=25]...
consider the general case that he had x.y rs.,after spening half amount he had [x/2-0.50].[y/2+50]...
now put the given conditions of ques....
1) [x/2-0.50]=y/2
2) [y/2+50]=x
solve these two equations & get the answer=99.98 Rs.
