What do we know ? There are 30 coins and the coins are nickels and dimes so n+d=30 we also know their value. 5n+10d=235 now we have two equations with two unknowns so we can solve it. n+d=30 5n+10d=235 n=30-d substitute 5(30-d)+10d=235 150-5d+10d=235 150+5d=235 5d=85 d=85/5 d=17 so n=13 check 5*13+17*10=235 65+170=235 235=235
