This question is from textbook Intermediate Algebra Answer by stanbon(57984)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The box currently contains 44 coins, consisting of pennies, dimes, and quarters. Quantity equation: p + d + q = 44 --------------------------------------------- The number of pennies is equal to the number of dimes, Quantity equation: p - d = 0 ------------------------ the total value is \$4.37. Value equation: p + 10d + 25q = 437 cents --------------------------------------- How many of each denomination of coin does he have in the box? -------- You have three equation with three variables: p + d + q = 44 p - d + 0 = 0 p + 10d + 25q = 437 ------------------------ Use any method you know to solve this system to get: p = 17 d = 17 q = 10 ============== Cheers, Stan H.
