Best answer

There were 375 Children

As,

Children (c) = Rs. 0.48 per c
Father (f) = Rs.2.00 per f
Mather (m) = Rs. 3.00 per m

Now,
let take c = 375 and f = 55 & m = 70

then,

children = Rs.0.48 * 375 = Rs. 180/-
Father = Rs. 2.00 * 55 = Rs. 110/-
Mather = Rs. 3.00 * 70 = Rs. 210/-

Now,
180+110+210 = 500/-
