total value of stamps sold in a  week=280rupees

converting the rupees into paisa=280*100=28000

the value of one stamp=14 paisa

no.stamps sold by the postoffice in a week is=28000/14=2000stamps

Stamps sold in a  week = Rs. 280

Each stamp cost = 14 paisa or Rs. 0.14

( 1 rupee = 100 paisas )

14 paisas = 14/100 = Rs 0.14 

Now we easily find total stamps that he sold

total stamp = 280 / 0.14 ( total amount divided by per unit rate )

Total stamps sold = 2000
