There are twice as many nickles as quarters and the remaining coins are dimes. If the total value of the coins is \$3.35, what is the number of each type of coin in the bank? --------------- Let number of quarters be "x": Value of these is 25x cents Number of nickels is "2x": Value of these is 5(2x)= 10x cents Number of dimes is "30-x-2x"=30-3x; Value of these is 10(30-3x)=300-30x cents ---------------- EQUATION: value + value + value = 335 cents 25x + 10x +300-30x=335 5x=35 x=7 (number of quarters) 2x=14 (number of nickels) 30-3x=9 (number of dimes) Cheers, Stan H.
