Collection of Coins 


A large bottle contains a collection of coins. When you examine the contents you are amazed to discover that there is an equal number of each type of denomination: 1 p, 2 p, 5 p, 10 p, 20 p, 50 p, Re 1, and Rs 2. Even more remarkable is that if you remove one coin there will be an exact amount in rupees. What is the smallest amount, in rupees, that could be in the bottle after removing that coin?
