How many of each coin do you have? x=dimes x +10= nickels 90-2x= quarters Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!you have one hundred coins in your coin jar, consisting of nickels, dimes and quarters. the total value of the coins is &11.80 and you have 10 more nickels than dimes. How many of each coin do you have? x=dimes x +10= nickels 90-2x= quarters ----------------- What you have is correct. Then add: 10*x + 5*(x+10) + 25*(90-2x) = 1180 You can do it from here, I'm sure, but... 10x + 5x+50 + 2250-50x = 1180 -35x = -1120 x = 32 dimes (= \$3.20) 42 = nickels (= \$2.10) 26 = quarters (= \$6.50) 100 coins------\$11.80
