    Can you solve this...?

    You have ten bags and 1000 one rupee coins...

    you fill 1000 one rupee coin in 10 bags....

    The problem is...

    When i ask the number between 1 to 1000...you show the count using the bags...

    For example...

    you fill each bag with 100 one rupee coin...so totally 1000..ok.

    if i ask 500 then u show the count using 5 bags..100+100+100+100+100

    but if i ask 450 then how u show the count...no way to show the count...

    So there is a problem..i will ask any number between 1 to 1000...
