Step 1
Note: the number of bags of tea in a case is irrelevant to this question.
15   gold coins =   case
1 gold coin = 1 15 cases
(temporally assume fractional case purchases are possible)
200 gold coins = 200 15 cases = 13 1 3 cases
If it is only possible to buy complete cases, 200 gold coins would allow the purchase of at most 13 cases.
