Contractor Problem

A contractor had employed 100 labourers for a flyover construction task. He did not allow any woman to work without her husband. Also, atleast half the men working came with their wives.

He paid five rupees per day to each man, four ruppes to each woman and one rupee to each child. He gave out 200 rupees every evening.

How many men, women and children were working with the constructor?

    Hey Lord,

    Man I tried my THE BEST but couldn't get closer than 199.26..
    Jus check how I did..

    x+y+z=100... (1)
    5x+4y+z=200... (2)
    then the answer would be.,
    18.18 MEN, 9.09 WOMEN and 72 KIDS.

    well I think its time for u to tell the Exact answer.

    I think your concept is right but you are committing mistake at some point.You are pretty close to the answer.
