THe problem is: A store employee is counting \$10.00 and \$20.00 bills. If there are 6 times as many \$10 bills as \$20 bills and the total amount is \$1760, find the number of each type of bill. 10x+60+20x=1760 30x+60=1760---then subtract 60 from both sides I get 30x=1700 x=56.6666666 I am not sure what I am doing wrong so any help with this would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in Advance.Answer by josmiceli(9649)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let = number of \$10 bills Let = number of \$20 bills given: (1) (2) Substitute (1) in (2) There are 132 \$10 bills and 22 \$20 bills check: OK
