He has 3and a half times as many nickels as dimes and one-half as many quarters as dimes. How much money does he have?Answer by ptaylor(2048)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x=number of dimes 3.5x=number of nickels 0.5x=number of quarters Now we are told that the above adds up to 130. so: x+3.5x+0.5x=130 5x=130 x=26---number of dimes=0.10(26)=\$2.60 3.5x=3.5*26=91 number of nickels=0.05(91)=\$4.55 0.5x=0.5(26)=13 number of quarters =0.25(13)=\$3.25 So: \$2.60 + \$4.55 + \$3.25=\$10.40 CK 26+91+13=130 130=130 Hope this helps----ptaylor
