 Question 35443: The question is as follows: You have at least \$30 in change in your drawer, consisting of dimes and quarters. Write an inequality that shows the different number of coins in your drawer. HELP!!!!Answer by narayaba(40)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x be the number of dimes Let y be the number of nickels A dime is 10 cents equivalent to \$(10/100) = \$0.1 A nickel is 5 cents equivalent to \$(5/100) = \$0.05 The change in the drawer is atleast \$30 which means the change in the drawer can be either \$30 or more than \$30 the total amount in dollars from the combination of dime and nickls is 0.1*x + 0.05*y. This amount must be greater than or equal to 30. 0.1*x + 0.05*y >= 30
