\[102=\rho \beta \]are the number of flowers sold to the Greek.

Work Step by Step

Calculate the total Number of Flowers by using symbol notations of Roman, Egyptian And Chinese Numerals. For ex. For Roman \[\begin{align} & \text{XLVI=}\,\text{(}50-10)\,+(5+1) \\ & =40+6 \\ & =46 \end{align}\] Similarly solving forothers Numeral, we get For Egyptian \[=32\] For Chinese \[=20\] Adding, \[32+46+20=98\] Sold to Greek are remaining from \[200\], Let’s Find out for Greek \[200-98=102=\rho \beta \] Hence, flowerssold to Greek\[=102=\rho \beta \]
