If she has 50 coins, how many of each type of coin does she have?Answer by fractalier(2101)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let N be the number of nickels and D be dimes, so that N + D = 50 Their values are 5N and 10D respectively, so that 5N + 10D = 350 Now let's multiply the first equation by 5 and subtract it from the second...we get 5N + 10D = 350 -(5N + 5D = 250) so we have 5D = 100 D = 20 N = 30
