 Question 632838: there are 8 times as many dimes as nickels, and the value of the dimes is \$9.00 more than the value of the nickels. how many nickels and dimes are there? I tried setting it up with x=dimes & y=nickels x=\$9.00 + y x=8y I am confusedAnswer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!there are 8 times as many dimes as nickels, and the value of the dimes is \$9.00 more than the value of the nickels. how many nickels and dimes are there? ---- quantity: d = 8n value: 10d = 5n + 900 ------ Substitute for "d" and solve for "n": 10(8n) = 5n + 900 75n = 900 n = 12 (# of nickels) --- Solve for "d": d = 8n d = 8*12 = 96 (# of dimes) ============================= Cheers, Stan H. ============
